Welcome to the Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards (IISMA) Website!

As the world keeps evolving at a much higher pace, workforces face challenges that our previous generations never encountered before. Led by a globally connected world, computational thinking, the rise of intelligent machines and systems, and other drivers of change, we believe that learning should not only be performed through conventional lectures, limited by time and space dimensions, and focusing only on a single scope of interest. Instead, we believe that our future generations should be exposed to broader experiences, engage with people from different academic backgrounds, cultures, and races, and become global citizens. Understanding the current gap and anticipating the upcoming opportunities, The government of Indonesia, through The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology, the Republic of Indonesia invested in IISMA.

IISMA is a government-funded flagship scholarship program, centrally managed by the Directorate General of Higher Education, Research, and Technology, Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology, to fund Indonesian undergraduate students for mobility programs at top partner universities overseas. Selected students can spend one semester to study courses outside their major, develop intercultural communication and leadership skills, experience the host country’s culture, extend international networks and do practical assignments to enhance their skills, enabling our next generation in becoming future global-minded leaders in their field of expertise.

This website provides information about the IISMA program, the application process, general requirements, profiles of home and host universities, ongoing collaboration with overseas partner universities, and contributions of our alumni. We hope that all involved stakeholders can learn and benefit from this website.

“find your own path to become a future global leader”

We look forward to your participation and contribution to this year’s IISMA program!

Chair of IISMA Program
