2012 – 2013 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program Global UGRAD

The Office of Academic Exchange Programs in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U. S. Department of State, is pleased to announce a new exchange program for undergraduate students-the 2012 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD)

The Global UGRAD Program provides scholarships for one semester or one academic year of U.S. Study in a NON-DEGREE Program. The goals of the program are to provide a diverse group of emerging student leaders, from non-elite and underrepresented groups in Indonesia and East Asia.

All global UGRAD Program participants will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate course work chosen from the institution’s (US) existing curriculum to allow students ample opportunity for ongoing interaction with U.S. Faculty and student peers, and for exposure to U.S. academic and classroom culture.

To ensure that students succeed in their new academic environments, host institutions will offer tailored instruction on topics including academic research and writing, critical thinking, time management, note taking, and studying for and taking tests. Participants will live on campus with American peers.

Students will also be provided with opportunities to participate in up to ten hours of community service per semester. Additionally, an internship component will be offered to all academic-year participants during the academic component of the program. Internships will be related to each participant’s field of study and/or career plans.

Participants may be eligible for up to 4 weeks of intensive English Language instruction in the United States prior to the start of academic portion of their program.


  1. Scholarships will be granted to students who currently are enrolled in S-1 degree programs only, and have completed their first semester and up to their firth semester of undergraduate study at an Indonesian university.
  2. Applicants should demonstrate leadership potential through academic work, community involvement, and extracurricular activities.
  3. Applicants must have minimum ITP/IBT TOEFL score of 500-score or IELTS 5.0 less than two years old. In some cases a personal interview by a fluent qualified Native English Speaker who can confirm that the nominee would be able to achieve that score when tested is acceptable. Candidates must also meet all the requirements of the institution where admission is being sought.
  4. Preference will be given to those who have had little or NO experience in the U.S. or outside of their home countries.
  5. Applications can be for either for one semester or two semesters based on nominee’s availability. No applications should be submitted for both one semester and full year programs.

  1. What a great chance :) so glad to got this information. I’m working as an admin in one of an industry in Indonesia. I was wonder if I available for this scholarship because I don’t have any high school education background and also not as a student. So, is it possible for me to follow this? Looking forward for your kindly information. Thank you very much.

    Regards ^_^

  2. Oh gosh,it might be i cant join it this year, i’m a first semester student, i havent complete it yet,i even just started my midterm exam. Hmm what a shame!

  3. This scholarship opens to any field of studies. That mean, you all are eligible to enter from any fields. eligible means, that you meet all the requirements needed and mentioned above.
    This is an anual program. So, if any of you cant entry now, you’ll be able to next year. For older undergraduates, in 6th semester and above, CAN NOT enter unfortunately. Bcz, when you enter on your 5th semester and get in, you’ll be sent to join the program on your 7th semester.
    Just go to aminef official site. Or if you guys have question, you can email me to annisaoctaviani14@yahoo.com

  4. Maybe i could answer some of your questions, since i have entered this program my self last year. But only until interview selection. I hope my information for this program could help :)

  5. I’ll graduate from high school in 2013. may i apply this scholarship earlier? and is there a chance for me to join in this program? please give me more information.

    • Hi!
      Well, I suggest you to join in when you’re graduating from high school and currently studying for UNDERGRADUATE or S1. as you can see, the title of the scholarship is undergraduate exchange, which means you need to be in undergraduate program in university to enter. But, if you want a scholarship after graduating high school, there’s a scholarship also hold by aminef : Community College Initiative Program. High school graduates are eligible to join the program. However both of the scholarship, UGRAD & CCI are both non-degree program. which means they don’t give you any title like diplomas or S1.
      any scholarships you choose, may life brings you good luck!
