Fulbright programs in Indonesia are administered through a bi-national commission called AMINEF, which is an abbreviation of American Indonesian Exchange Foundation. In some other countries, Fulbright programs can also be administered by a similar commission or directly by the U.S. embassy or consular offices.
As the FulbrightProgram in the archipelago grows exponentially, the U.S. and the IndonesianGovernment then established the American Indonesian Exchange Foundation(AMINEF) in 1992. This non-profit bi-national foundation functions tospecifically administer the Core Fulbright and other U.S. Government-fundedscholarship programs in Indonesia. AMINEF alsoadministers the Fulbright-Indonesia Research in Science and Technology (FIRST)program that offers grants for Indonesian and American researchers, teachersand scholars who address issues in Science, Technology, Engineering andMathematics (STEM). In the same year, AMINEF awarded 13 fellowships forU.S. students to conduct research in Indonesia, still under the FulbrightStudent Program. The Foundation also brought 35 recent U.S. college graduatesto assist English teaching at various Indonesian secondary schools throughoutIndonesia under the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) program. TheETAs served as a resource for faculty members and students in the field ofEnglish and American culture at their sites. Besides, AMINEF funded 10Fulbright Senior Scholars to conduct research or teach at Indonesianuniversities. As expected from its name, AMINEF board consists of representatives from Indonesia and the U.S. with Indonesian Minister of National Education and U.S. Ambassador as the joint chairmen. AMINEF was established in 1992 and, based on what I’ve heard, historically has its root from USAID programs for Indonesia since 1950s. AMINEF’s basic missions are, quoting from its official website, to administer various scholarship programs for both Indonesians and Americans, and to give information about education in the U.S. as well as what opportunities are available to study there. Currently, AMINEF administers the following programs for Indonesians:The American Indonesian Exchange Foundation (AMINEF), established in 1992, is a bi-national non-profit foundation that administers the Fulbright Program in Indonesia.
