“I oblige all students, educators and cultural actors to take advantage of this opportunity,” Education, Culture, Research and Technology Minister Nadiem Anwar Makarim said in a written statement received here. Thursday.

The Indonesian Scholarship was launched during the tenth episode of freedom of learning. This was a follow-up to the scholarship expansion policy issued by the Education Fund Management Institute (LPDP).
