    • Hai Ron..
      For Study in America you can apply for Fulbright Scholarship.. The deadline is 15 April, so you still have a week to prepare all the material, include your study objective and research proposal.. You can visit aminef.or.id for detail.. This include the material you should provide, and you have to send it by mail not email. so you should arrange how long it takes to prepare all the things.
      But, if you wanna try another opportunity in the US outside the Aminef scholarship, you can search by US University. From US university with interesting programs that you want, then you can seek in this university websites about scholarship or financial aid offered by them. A lot of US university have this program, but you should make sure that its available for International Students like us. Also, you should know that some of this financial aid is partial, not cover all you financial need in the university. So, you should have some saving money to cover the financial expand. I hope this information can help you find the opportunity to study abroad, specifically in the US.. if you still have some question or wanna share something, you can contact me in asroriadib@gmail.com
      Good luck for the application..
