Indonesia Arts & Culture Scholarship Program

Jakarta, 26 July - 23 October 2010

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Republic of Indonesia has awarded scholarships to 62 young people from Asia, Pacific, Europe, Australia and America to study Indonesian arts and culture for 3 months. After a 7-day orientation course in Jakarta and a field trip to Bandung, the awardees departed to 6 regions (Padang Panjang, Bandung, Jogjakarta, Surakarta, Surabaya and Denpasar) where they studied Indonesian culture, particularly, dance, music, song and painting. The 3-month 'learning by doing' program ended with arts presentations at the "Indonesia Channel" in Surabaya.
