ESA has interviewed her and asked some questions which can be shared to the reader. This is what she said about her long journey to get this scholarship:
“It’s a kind of a long story, I knew about IELSP scholarship when I was in my 1st semester from IESP Seminar from ESA. Then, I ask more information to Yeni ’05 and Syifa ‘05 who have already got this scholarship. I was always tried to find the information from the internet. The requirement was for the students in 5th semester. Then, I tried to apply although I wasn’t really interested in. I applied it together with some of my friends.
Some requirements that should be completed are GPA score, TOEFL ITP min 450, statement letter from university and lecturer, and the most important things are four essay about our life personal expert, educational background, the most pressing issue, and our future achievement of long-live carrier. Some certificates of social activities are also needed, like the certificate of SCALDS and ECP. After passed the administration selection, I followed an interview from IIEF. I was really nervous until I thought that I wouldn’t get this scholarship. But two weeks after, they sent me an e-mail of the list of the students’ grantees. I was really surprised when I saw that I was the only one from Pontianak. There are 70 students from Indonesia, and we’re divided into four area, IOWA, Virginia, Colorado, and Arizona.
IIEf is a very professional foundation, I’m very proud of the way they work. Their event organizing is very professional. You don’t have to pay; this is free, except the passport andPDO (Pre Departure orientation). This is a full scholarship. They are really care about us; you’ll not get suffer there.
BTW, my competencies are my writing skill in my essays, and of course … my luck. We just have to tell the truth, I wrote what I thought should be written. This scholarship is very exciting, you have to try this. Just visit IIEF.or.id and prepare yourself!”
