In a collaborative work between SUMMIT Institute of Development/University of Mataram, Harvard School of Public Health, SEAMEO-RECFON, University of Andalas and Helen Keller International we establish master and doctoral scholarships for individuals from West Nusa Tenggara at SEAMEO-RECFON. We also recruit highly qualified individuals from other parts of eastern Indonesia to attend a SUMMER course at the Harvard School of Public Health and to be interns within the Higher Education Network Ring (HENRI).
We created and managed a scholarship scheme designed to support students from West Nusa Tenggara to take a master degree in health related field. Our scholars were selected with a systematic approach to find highly motivated and knowledgable candidates aiming to do health related research from any field including the field of management, law and science (scholars profile). We also supported our scholars in academic writing for thesis and journal articles. The scheme was funded by the Center for Health and Human Development and Allen Foundation
