EducationUSA is an official U.S. Department of State network of over 400 international advising centers in more than 170 countries. The network promotes U.S. higher education to students around the world by offering accurate, comprehensive, and current information about opportunities to study at accredited post-secondary institutions in the United States. We have eight centers (Medan, Banda Aceh, Makassar, Malang, and two centers in Surabaya) throughout Indonesia and two of them are in Jakarta - one is inside the U.S. Embassy Jakarta and the other one is in @america.
@america is a unique, high-tech American cultural center by the U.S. Embassy located Pacific Place Mall, South Jakarta, where society can express its thoughts and ideas about America as well as learning about U.S. higher education system.
We are hoping with this database, we can connect young Indonesians who are planning to study in the US with one or two alumni such as yourself, from the same institution the student interested in applying. Not only that, you, as the alumni can also guide the students with their personal essay/statement of purpose, resume/CV, and others.
Also, if you are interested in speaking at @america (in-person or via Skype, if you are not in Jakarta) and have a topic in mind, let us know as we are constantly looking for US alumni to join our events here with EducationUSA @america. Topics can be as technical as how to write personal essay or statement of purpose, strengthen resume/CV, or simply a sharing session such as how to make the most of your American education or internship opportunities in the US, among others.
