DARMASISWA Students are students from the Darmasiswa Scholarship Program. Indonesian government through the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) of Indonesia in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) offers scholarship for foreign students from countries which have diplomatic relationship with Indonesia to study Bahasa Indonesia, arts, music, and crafts.
The DARMASISWA program itself is conducted in 2 schemes; Regular 1 (one) Year-Darmasiswa RI Scholarship Program and Regular 6 (Six) months – Darmasiswa RI Scholarship Program.
The main purpose of the DARMASISWA program is to promote and increase the interest in the language and cultures of Indonesia among youth of other countries. It has also been designed to provide stronger cultural links and understanding among participating countries.
