Summer Advanced Indonesian Abroad Program 2024

For U.S. Students, Teachers, Educational Administrators, and Independent Scholars

Program Dates: June 19 – July 31, 2024


Location: Language Training Center (LTC), Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW) in Salatiga, Central Java, Indonesia
University website: 
http://ltc.uksw.edu/

This immersion program focuses on advanced-level Indonesian language acquisition. The program consists of a structured academic program of four hours of language instruction, four mornings per week, and two-three hours of arts and cultural activities one afternoon per week plus a weekly field trip.  One weekend will feature a cultural or scenic excursion in Central Java outside Salatiga.

Instruction is given in small-individualized groups taught by in-country language teachers who have extensive experience teaching Indonesian as a foreign language. Topics for instruction are theme-based and include education, language and culture, history, literature, arts and performance, economics, political and social issues, environment and globalization. One topic is discussed each week.

All applicants should have achieved by June 2024 at least an intermediate level of proficiency in Indonesian, equivalent to the proficiency expected at the end of a fourth-semester or sixth-quarter course.  Graduate students, undergraduates of junior or senior standing, faculty members, teachers in elementary and secondary schools, and educational administrators are eligible to apply. It is permitted for students to have graduated immediately prior to the beginning of the summer program.

Note: Although Advanced Indonesian Abroad is widely recognized as a formal academic program, participants do not receive academic credit for their participation.  The program can provide a transcript for students who wish to request academic credit from their home campuses.

Fulbright-Hays Fellowships

For U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents, fellowship funding is available for this program from the U.S. Department of Education's Fulbright Hays Group Projects Abroad, which covers full tuition, homestays, books and other classroom materials, plus round-trip international airfare from the U.S. to Indonesia, and related ground transportation.  Please indicate on your application if you would like to be considered for this funding.

Important:  The United States Department of Education stipulates that no person may be a funded fellow in any Fulbright-Hays group study program (or seminar abroad program) more than once in any given three-year period.  No one may ever be funded for more than two such programs.

Other Funding Options

Applicants who have their own funding for transportation, tuition, and homestays may also be admitted.  Qualified students can use Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships from their home institutions, Boren fellowships, or university or private funding to cover these items.  All of these funding options should be applied for separately from this application.  The amount that should be budgeted for tuition and homestays is $4,100.
