How it works

  1. Mentors and Alumni register interest (create account).
  2. Selection process and pairing.
  3. Alumni work with the Mentors to develop draft articles for submission to an international journal, or a comparable output in policy or commercial sectors.
  4. Professional development is available through a series of workshops in Indonesia for Indonesian Mentors and Alumni.
  5. Support is provided via the online platform.
  6. An International Conference will be held in Jakarta at the end of the Program to showcase the quality research undertaken.

Note: Participation by Mentors and Alumni is voluntary.
