Program to Extend Scholarships and Training to Achieve Sustainable Impacts (PRESTASI)
The project objective is to improve the performance and leadership skills of Indonesian professionals, which, in turn, will help to promote development in Indonesia. PRESTASI will strengthen and expand the base of skilled, high-performing professionals and institutions in Indonesia’s public sector and private sector. The project will provide hundreds of Indonesians the opportunity to earn advanced degrees in the United States and here in Indonesia.
PRESTASI will continue to support the tradition of participant training and human capacity development by providing opportunities for advanced academic degrees in the U.S. and Indonesia. The program will build on the successes of its predecessor, which provided 162 participants short term opportunities and 159 participants longer term opportunities for Masters and PhD studies in programs in the U.S., Indonesia, and third countries. PRESTASI is open to all Indonesians who meet the requirements listed below.
