KNB SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR 2015
 
Since 1993, the Government of the Republic of Indonesia has started offering postgraduate (master degree) scholarships to students from the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) member countries.  Nevertheless, due to substantial change in the international political constellation, the use of the term “NAM” in this program was considered irrelevant.  The program name then changed to Kemitraan Negara Berkembang (Developing Countries Partnership) Scholarship or KNB Scholarship.  Consequently, the program have been widely offered to students, not only to the NAM member countries, but also to other developing countries.  In fact, this program has attracted more applicants as by 2013, 647 students from 64 countries had been awarded this scholarship.

For this year of 2015, the program is offered to developing countries, including students from Argentina and Paraguay.
