This one is an advertising… 🙂
Somebody posted this info on milis beasiswa (beasiswa (at) yahoogroups (dot) com), and as a Fulbrighter myself, I feel obliged to spread this too… 🙂 Preference will be given to applicants serving as faculty members of private institutions of higher education in Indonesia, but that does not mean that those who’re not a faculty member are not eligible or have no chance at all. It’s alright if you’re not a full time faculty yet (which is possibly because you only have bachelor’s degree). The definition of “faculty member” here also applies if you’re only a research or teaching assistant at a higher education institution.
For those who’s interested in pursuing a PhD degree, Fulbright also has separate scholarship programs for PhD.
This scholarship is very prestigious and competitive, even more so for the Master’s level. Good luck to you who want to try…
