Training has long been a key component of the U.S. Government’s development program in Indonesia. USAID helps advance Indonesian professionals' technical expertise in the fields of health, education, environment, economics, and democratic governance by providing post-graduate scholarship opportunities at American and Indonesian universities.
USAID supports this tradition in Indonesia through its participant training program, which provides scholarships for academic degrees and the creation of an alumni association.
USAID will continue to support the tradition of participant training and human-skills development by providing opportunities for advanced academic degrees in the U.S. and Indonesia through USAID's PRESTASI program.
The program will build on the successes of its predecessor - the Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD) program, also known as the Participant Training Program - which provided participants short- and long-term opportunities for Masters and PhD studies in the United States, Indonesia and third countries.
