Posted by mkofod on August 10th, 2014 · 2015, Arts and Social Science, Built Environment, Business, Engineering, Language, Law, Medicine, Science, UNSW Summer Break

Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP):  Applications now open and will close at 5pm AEST on Wednesday 28 August 2014

The Australia-Indonesia Institute (AII) invites applications from Australians aged between 21 and 25 years (at the time of departure to Indonesia), willing to represent Australia for two months in Indonesia during December 2014 to February 2015 as members of the AIYEP 2014-15.

The program aims to provide wider opportunities for young people from Indonesia and Australia to appreciate the culture, development and way of life of each other’s country and to build groups of young and potentially influential people in both Australia and Indonesia who have knowledge and personal experience of the two countries and who develop close and enduring links with each other.

Participants will be chosen from applicants undertaking tertiary studies or employed in any one or more of the following areas:

Agriculture, Aquaculture, Arts, Music, Asian Studies, Economics, Business, International Relations, Education, Engineering, Science, Environmental Management, Gender Studies, Journalism, Media, Information and Communications Technology, Law, Health, Politics, Sport, Tourism and Hospitality.

A good level of Indonesian language is desirable though not essential as the program makes allowances for some participants to learn the language during the period of the exchange – however the basics of the Indonesian language must be acquired before the holding of pre-departure training. Applicants must be in good health.


Closing Date


The closing date for applications is 5pm AEST Wednesday 28 August 2014.

Application forms are online

All applicants must complete the application form in full and provide all mandatory requested documentation. Applications that do not meet these minimum requirements will be deemed ineligible.

‘Studying overseas is a life-changing experience; one that all students

should have access to, regardless of their background or socioeconomic


Emeritus Professor Di Yerbury, Chair of the Board of Directors


Enter the Study Overseas Foundation, a registered Australian charity whose mission is

dedicated to providing these opportunities for Australian students.


Tertiary students are our future leaders; our future doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers and

writers. Allowing them the experience of furthering their education and networking with

students in other countries will facilitate their personal and academic growth, not to mention

foster international relationships. This, in turn, benefits our society and economy.


The Study Overseas Foundation offers travel grants for Australian students and accepts

donations from individuals, companies and organisations. At a cocktail event on Monday, 16

June, The Study Overseas Foundation announced the details of its first round of

scholarships, as well as new partnerships that will deliver tens of thousands of dollars of

scholarships to students over the coming years.


Do you know a student that shows leadership potential, academic merit and a thirst for

furthering their studies?


The Study Overseas Foundation’s initial scholarship round provides five students with a

$1000 grant across these categories:

• Business leadership

• Leadership in community or international development

• Leadership in the sciences


Students applying for this scholarship must be an Australian citizen and/or permanent

resident, living and studying in Australia, enrolled in a non-research degree at an Australian

university and be over 18 years of age. Applications open on Friday 20th June and close at

11.59pm on Friday, 15 August.
