The Indonesian Government-NAM Scholarships is a program jointly run by Indonesia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UGM and NAM Center for South-South Technical Cooperation (NAM-CSSTC). This is part of the Indonesian Government’s efforts to promote international cooperation in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries. By bringing together professionals and scholars from NAM member countries, the scholarship program aims at promoting networks to facilitate the creation and sharing of knowledge in solving local and global development challenges.
As part of its commitment to becoming a world-class university, UGM provides scholarships to international students of full-time Masters’s Degree. UGM offers, among others, Kemitraan Negara Berkembang (KNB) Scholarship Program and Darmasiswa Scholarship Program in collaboration with Indonesia’s Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education and Ministry of Education and Culture, and other scholarships in collaboration with development partners, such as JICA and AUN/Seed-Net (for further information, please visit www.ugm.ac.id).
As an institution that further helps developing countries to achieve their development goals, NAM CSSTC believes that the scholarship program for students from developing countries is an important means to enhance and accelerate developing countries’ national development, which is in line with the NAM CSSTC’s mission. The accomplishment of this objective will contribute to the realization of the NAM CSSTC’s vision, which is to build developing countries’ national capacity and collective self-reliance.
Furthermore, this scholarship program will contribute to improving the quality of human resources of developing countries and the achievement of SDGs, particularly Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth and Goal 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. The scholarship will offer international students a unique experience of Indonesia’s higher education institutions and multicultural community. Scholarship awardees will have the opportunities to learn the Indonesian language and culture and engage with the local communities they live in.
