DARMASISWA RI SCHOLARSHIP is a scholarship programme offered to all foreign students from countries which have diplomatic relationship with Indonesia to study Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian Language), traditional music, traditional dance and Indonesian crafts. Candidates can choose 1 out of 46 universities in which the programme is carried out (see here). These universities are located in different cities in Indonesia. The programme is organized by the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).

The programme was started in 1974 as part of ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) initiative, initially admitting only students from ASEAN. However, in 1976 the program was extended to include students from other countries such as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and USA. In the early 90’s, the programme was further more extended to include all countries which have diplomatic relationship with Indonesia. To date, the number of countries participating in the program is more than 75 countries.

The main purpose of the DARMASISWA programme is to increase and foster the interest in Bahasa Indonesia and Indonesian Culture among the youth of other countries. It has also been designed to enhance mutual understanding and provide stronger cultural links among participating countries.

The interest of international students in participating the programme keep on increasing year by year. In 2011, we offer to 750 students who would like to participate in the programme as can be seen in the following table:
