Furthermore, VEDC Malang is one of the chosen institutions which is trusted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Republic Indonesia to become the implementer of Darmasiswa scholarship program. Darmasiswa is a scholarship program extended by the government of the Republic of Indonesia through the Bureau of Planning and Foreign Affairs of Ministry of Education and Culture to foreign students from countries with which Indonesia has friendly relations. The programs offered are Indonesian language, arts, music and crafts. Participants can choose their place of study from over 38 participating universities and colleges. Then, the main purpose of the Darmasiswa scholarship program is to arouse and foster interest in the Indonesian language and culture among citizens of friendly countries, and to reciprocate scholarship programs provided by other countries for Indonesian citizens and to forge closer cultural links with these nations. Moreover, the Darmasiswa program is essentially a “non-degree” program of one year or less.
