Program Mentorship Indonesia Mengglobal 2015: Ayo Daftar!

Program Mentorship Indonesia Mengglobal 2015: Ayo Daftar!

Setelah sukses dengan program mentorship tahun lalu, Indonesia Mengglobal kembali menghadirkan Program Mentorship di tahun 2015 ini. Dalam program gratis ini kami memasangkan 30 orang calon mahasiswa  (mentee) dengan mahasiswa atau alumni  (mentor) dengan latar belakang yang sesuai, yang telah berkomitmen memberikan masukan dan saran yang spesifik sesuai dengan latar belakang dan tujuan masing-masing mentee. Dalam waktu beberapa bulan ke depan, para mentee akan mengerjakan tugas secara online serta mendapatkan bimbingan dari para mentor untuk membantu dalam persiapan melamar ke universitas impian mereka.

Kami berharap dapat mengatasi hambatan terbesar yang dihadapi calon mahasiswa Indonesia dalam melamar ke universitas di luar negeri, yaitu kurangnya informasi dan inspirasi. Saat diharuskan mengambil tes-tes seperti TOEFL, GMAT, atau GRE, menulis esai, atau menyertakan surat rekomendasi, banyak yang masih bertanya-tanya dan memerlukan bimbingan dari orang Indonesia lain yang telah berhasil melalui proses aplikasi tersebut dengan sukses. Sistem pendidikan formal di Indonesia memang tidak diarahkan untuk mempersiapkan lulusannya berkuliah ke luar negeri. Ada banyak institusi lain yang bisa memberikan bimbingan tapi dengan mengenakan biaya yang tidak sedikit, sampai ribuan dolar.

Tahun ini Program Mentorship Indonesia Mengglobal juga memberikan beasiswa untuk 30 mentee yang terpilih. Kami mendapatkan bantuan dana dari EducationUSA di bawah Kedutaan besar Amerika Serikat yang akan menyediakan beasiswa kepada para mentee yang ingin mendaftar ke perguruan tinggi AS. Oleh karena itu, 20 dari 30 mentee yang diseleksi tahun ini akan dialokasikan untuk mahasiswa yang akan mendaftar ke Amerika. Dengan bantuan EducationUSA, mentee ini akan mendapatkan beasiswa sebesar $200 dan juga pengembalian biaya aplikasi visa Amerika (US student visa application fee reimbursement) senilai $200. Tentunya, dalam saat yang sama mentee ini juga bisa mendaftar ke perguruan tinggi di negara lain. 10 mentee yang tidak mendaftar ke Amerika akan mendapatkan beasiswa $100 melalui penggalangan dana crowdfunding kami sendiri. Dana ini dapat digunakan untuk membayar biaya aplikasi sekolah dan biaya-biaya tes seperti TOEFL, SAT, atau GRE. Beasiswa ini diharapkan dapat meringankan beban calon mahasiswa, sehingga mereka dapat fokus untuk mendaftar ke universitas yang terbaik bagi mereka.

Indonesia Mengglobal juga ingin menyampaikan terima kasih yang mendalam bagi semua donor yang akan menyumbang untuk program ini. Anda semua telah memberikan kontribusi nyata bagi kemajuan pendidikan anak bangsa Indonesia.  Anda merupakan wujud nyata dari pernyataan “Pendidikan berkualitas adalah tanggung jawab kita semua.”

Kami sangat bangga dengan kesuksesan para mentee tahun lalu yang telah berhasil diterima di berbagai universitas terkemuka dunia, dan kami yakin bahwa para mentee tahun ini akan mencapai kesuksesan serupa.

Berikut adalah beberapa testimoni dari para mentee tahun lalu:

“Indonesia Mengglobal bagi saya bukan hanya tempat untuk sekedar mencari mentor dan mendapatkan saran untuk proses aplikasi sekolah impian saya. IM adalah sebuah wadah yang membuat saya tidak merasa sendirian, karena banyak sekali anak-anak Indonesia yang sedang berjuang dan mau membantu satu sama lain.” – Rizkyana

“This program has helped me a lot not only in thinking about my real motivation to decide to pursue higher education but also in being realistic about what school to choose and strategizing to get the best. My mentor and group coordinator also helped in building my confidence and especially good habit to have: do your own research before asking anything. Many thanks to mentors, donors, and organizers.” – Eltina

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success. Why preparation? because studying abroad will definitely require a good planning and preparation. Bersama Indonesia Mengglobal Mentorship Program 2014 sebagai mentee, saya merasakan bantuan yang luar biasa dalam melakukan persiapan untuk apply ke sekolah impian saya. It has been a great experience! Mulai dari persiapan dokumen-dokumen yang diperlukan hingga koreksi essay yang akan diajukan. Tim IM dan mentornya juga sangat interaktif dan responsif dalam menjawab pertanyaan dan memberikan banyak tips and tricks seputar pengajuan aplikasi ke sekolah hingga seputar kehidupan di negara tujuan. Bantuan beasiswanya juga memudahkan saya untuk membayar biaya admission fee pada saat mendaftar ke universitas tujuan. Alhamdulillah, berkat persiapan yang hebat dari Tim IM dan mentor saya yaitu Kak Ignasius Ryan, kini saya telah diterima di Durham University jurusan MSc Islamic Finance. Akhirnya impian saya kini tercapai dan selamat datang ‘Studying Abroad’! Terima kasih Indonesia Mengglobal.” – Nur
