This immersion program focuses on advanced-level language acquisition and consists of a structured academic program of four hours of language
instruction four mornings/week and two-three hours of task-based activities one afternoon per week plus a group field trip on Friday.
One weekend will feature an excursion to a cultural site in 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, culture, history, literature, arts, economics, political issues, and globalization. One topic is discussed each week.
All applicants should have achieved by June 2015 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.
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.
Please note: 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 may also be admitted who have their own funding for transportation, tuition, and homestays. Qualified students can use Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships, 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 $3,200.
In addition, all participants will be expected to provide the following:
• a $500 program fee
• Indonesian dictionary
• appropriate pre-travel inoculations
• U.S. passport
• Indonesian visa
