Fulbright Master's Degree Scholarship for Indonesian

The American Indonesian Exchange Foundation (AMINEF) is the binational Fulbright Commission for Indonesia. For twenty-five years we have carried forward the vision and mission of the Fulbright program in Indonesia, which in 2017 celebrated its 65th anniversary. AMINEF’s many programs for educational exchange have increased mutual understanding between the United States and Indonesia and strengthened the ties that unite our two countries. Since 1950, 2,815 Indonesians and 1,120 Americans have participated in exchanges. Approximately 80 percent of the Indonesians received graduate degrees at the master’s or doctoral levels from American universities. The remaining 20 percent participated in non-degree exchanges administered by AMINEF.
Our cooperation with ECA, the U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Section in Jakarta, the International Institute of Education (IIE), the Council of International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), and various Indonesian ministries and government and private sector institutions in Indonesia has been instrumental to the success of AMINEF’s Fulbright and other programs and has immeasurably helped us in meeting the many challenges that we face.
