Bakrie Graduate Fellowship

Bakrie Graduate Fellowship program is an integrated program by Bakrie Center Foundation, formed as scholarship grant to the outstanding students of our 11 Partner Universities. The scholarship is given through a tight selection process.

Selection Criteria

Applicants should have (a) a confirmed acceptance at the university partners (b) an excellent academic record with GPA of at least 3.5 for undergraduate and graduate level, (c) a good command of the English language, (d) assessed to have outstanding potential for leadership in government, business, or civil society after graduation.
Each Fellowship is tenable for one-year only for full-time students in master programs in almost all subjects.  Some professional based programs in medicine, business and law are excluded from the Bakrie Graduate Fellowships program.  The successful candidate is expected to complete his/her studies within the tenable period.

Selection Process

Candidates should send their application directly to the university partners.  Do not send the applications to the Bakrie Center Foundation.  The university will draw up a shortlist based on GPA scores. Those selected will then have to undergo a leadership assessment test arranged by the Bakrie Center Foundation.  The final score is based on weighted average of academic and leadership scores. The university will make the final announcement.

Each scholarship will cover the following:

  • Tuition and other compulsory fees specified by the school
  • Monthly stipend
  • Books
  • Research Grant

BCF consistently keep doing its efforts in the supporting roles in the development of future leaders, through granting scholarships and providing a leadership training. Up to this year, BCF has granted 466 scholars with BGF program and 1081 students with LDGS programs.
