The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced a $26 million expansion to its Program to Extend Scholarship and Training to Achieve Sustainable Impact (PRESTASI). Under the expanded scholarship program, Indonesian public servants can earn postgraduate degrees in the United States or Indonesia in the fields of public policy, economic growth, political science, public administration, environment, health, and education.

Education is one of the best investments we can make in the future of this country,” said U.S. Ambassador Robert Blake.
