UT-IISMA 2023 Reference and Guideline

What is IISMA?

Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards (IISMA) is a Government of Indonesia scholarship scheme to fund Indonesian students on mobility programs to overseas universities.  IISMA is designed to accommodate undergraduate students to spend one semester (approximately 16 weeks) at university to study, experience host country culture, and do practical assignments to hone their skills. This program is centrally managed by the Directorate General of Higher Education, Kemdikbudristek (Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology or MoECRT) funded by the Lembaga Pengelola Dana Pendidikan/Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP). Application of participation is open for undergraduate students from all Indonesian higher education institutions.

The objective of this program is to facilitate Indonesian students to gain knowledge and skills as well as to exchange ideas and culture, and to build networks with their peers, academics, and international community overseas.

This year Kemdikbudristek will send selected qualified students nominated by Indonesian Universities all around Indonesia.
