IIEF – Indonesian International Education Foundation was established in 1982 with the aim to promote the development of Indonesian people and institutions through international education. We believe that we currently live in an age of astonishing opportunities for people to interact and to learn across borders, and it is crucial for people to equip themselves in thriving in today’s interconnected world. Therefore, it is our mission to develop a cadre of Indonesian leaders who not only embrace the global challenges, but also continuously sharpen their critical thinking, intercultural competence, and work- and world-ready skills, in order to bring Indonesia to be the global leader.
For more than 30 years, IIEF has worked with numerous clients, sponsors and donors to develop and manage various programs and initiatives that enable Indonesians to gain wider access to high quality education and work opportunity. Not only do we create programs enabling Indonesian youths to access quality education, but we also develop a wide range of initiatives that provide Indonesian individuals to sharpen their potentials to emerge as competent professionals in their individual fields.
IIEF has developed its expertise in four core areas: Scholarship and Fellowship Management, Capacity Development Initiatives, Services to Education, and Testing and Certification.
From creating and managing innovative scholarship programs to designing multicultural workforce development projects and leadership development initiatives, IIEF helps thousands of Indonesian individuals and institutions to better understand and to accurately address the global and professional forces shaping their future.
IIEF’s wealth of experience includes implementing scholarship programming on behalf of the U.S. Department of State, Ford Foundation, GE Foundation, Cargill, PT. Paiton Energy, ExxonMobil Oil Indonesia and the Freeman Foundation. Most recently, IIEF has served as prime contractor on USAID/Indonesia’s PRESTASI (Program to Extend Scholarships and Training to Achieve Sustainable Impacts) since 2011, making IIEF one of very few local organizations in Indonesia trusted to serve as a Prime Contractor of US Government’s project with high contract value. PRESTASI is USAID scholarship program in Indonesia for a Higher Education Degree that help individuals, organizations, and institutions acquire the knowledge, skills, and capacity to support Indonesia’s advancement.
