Two new postgrad scholarships launched with Indonesia

Two new postgraduate scholarships will be awarded to Indonesian students who demonstrate exceptional merit to pursue postgraduate programmes at NTU Singapore.

Launched by NTU Singapore and the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education Agency (LPDP), a public service agency under Indonesia’s Ministry of Finance, the scholarships will foster greater collaboration between Singapore and Indonesia in higher education.

Indonesian students who are keen to pursue postgraduate research at NTU can apply for the LPDP-NTU Graduate Scholarship, which will fund eligible Indonesian students to do a PhD programme in social science, humanities, science, technology, engineering, and medicine at NTU Singapore.

The LPDP-NTU Fellows MBA Scholarship will financially support eligible Indonesian students for the Nanyang Fellows MBA (Master of Business Administration) programme, a one-year executive education programme offered by the Nanyang Business School at NTU and is designed for senior public sector executives.

The collaboration was inked in two agreements today in Jakarta, Indonesia, by NTU President Professor Ho Teck Hua and LPDP President Director Dr Andin Hadiyanto.

The new joint scholarships build on NTU’s earlier partnerships with Indonesia. Last year, NTU and Indonesia’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology launched the Indonesia–NTU Singapore Institute of Research for Sustainability and Innovation (INSPIRASI), a five-year collaborative research programme that is funded by LPDP and focuses on climate change and sustainable development.
