Jakarta (ANTARA) –

The United States, along with Australia, India, and Japan (Quad governments), offers scholarships to students from Quad and ASEAN countries to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in the US.

“This program sponsors exceptional master’s and doctoral students to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in the United States,” said executive vice president, program development and partner services, Institute of International Education (IIE), Jonah Kokodyniak, during a virtual interview on Tuesday.

This scholarship is offered in collaboration with IIE, a global organization that administers the world’s most prestigious scholarship programs, to develop a network of science and technology experts committed to the collective good by advancing innovation and collaboration in the private, public, and academic sectors.

“The program builds Quad partners’ fundamental understanding of each other, society, and culture through programming and networking opportunities with leading scientists, technologists, and politicians in each country,” he said.

In addition to supporting highly talented researchers, they also identify candidates who are committed to collaborating in areas such as climate change, public health, and the use of artificial intelligence for the public good.

In the first wave of this fellowship, they selected students from four Quad countries: Australia, India, Japan, and the United States.

Meanwhile, they have also expanded this program to 10 ASEAN countries, including Indonesia, not only to expand the geographical scope of the program, but also to underscore the fellowship’s commitment to providing real benefits for the Indo-Pacific region.

“We received an overwhelming number of applications from nearly every ASEAN country during this outreach cycle, demonstrating significant demand in the region and ASEAN countries for US higher education and scientific collaboration,” Kokodyniak said.

He further said that IIE is currently in the process of selecting candidates for fellowship recipients.

“We have carried out the selection process correctly. So in about a month we will announce the candidates,” he stressed.

Those interested in obtaining a scholarship can access information regarding registration at quadfellowship.org web page.

“We are currently selecting the second generation of students in the fall and winter of 2024. And in 2025, we will select the third generation of applicants,” he said.

Meanwhile, a US official emphasized the Quad partners’ commitment to providing real benefits to students from ASEAN countries.

“Earlier this year, Quad partners came together to expand Quad Fellowship eligibility to students from Southeast Asia, reflecting Quad’s commitment to delivering tangible benefits to our partners across ASEAN,” the official said.

“We are very pleased that many talented students from Southeast Asia have applied for this prestigious scholarship,” he added.
