USAID’s Program to Extend Scholarships to Achieve Sustainable Impacts (PRESTASI) 

The U.S. Government, through USAID, is committed to expanding access to higher education for promising scholars. Since 1950, USAID has provided more than 4,000 scholarships to Indonesians, including 335 under the USAID Program to Extend Scholarships and Training to Achieve Sustainable Impacts (PRESTASI) program. 

USAID PRESTASI scholars have returned from their studies in the U.S. to support Indonesia’s sustainable development and achieve its vision for prosperity and self-reliance. Reflecting President Jokowi’s commitment to increasing human capacity in Indonesia, USAID is proud of our legacy equipping Indonesia’s future leaders with world-class knowledge and skills. Please continue to visit this site for program updates and to learn about how alumni are contributing to Indonesia’s development.

USAID PRESTASI is not currently recruiting. If you are interested in pursuing studies in the U.S. and want to take advantage of thousands of academic programs, world-class institutions, and unmatched flexibility, you can access free student advising at one of eight EducationUSA centers in Indonesia, located in Banda Aceh, Jakarta, Makassar, Malang, Medan, and Surabaya-- or visit this webpage

USAID PRESTASI provides training and technical services required to strengthen and expand the base of skilled, high-performing professionals and institutions in Indonesia’s public and private sector. The scholarship program improves the performance and leadership skills of Indonesian professionals, which, in turn will help to promote development in the country.
