Ministry of Transportation Offers Double Degree Scholarship for Civil Servants

The Indonesian Ministry of Transportation has announced a new scholarship program specifically for civil servants (PNS) working in the transportation sector. The Beasiswa Rintisan Gelar scholarship offers the opportunity to pursue a double degree master's program at leading universities in Indonesia and abroad.

According to the Center for Human Resource Development of the Ministry of Transportation (PPSDMAP), the scholarship is open to PNS employees at the Ministry of Transportation, local governments in the transportation sector, and state-owned enterprises (BUMN) in the transportation industry. The application period is currently open and will run until April 30, 2024.

Successful applicants will have the freedom to choose a study program that aligns with their interests and career needs. The scholarship aims to enhance the competence and quality of human resources in the transportation sector.

Why this matters: Investing in the education and development of civil servants in key sectors like transportation can lead to improved services, infrastructure, and policy-making that benefits the public. Offering scholarships for advanced degrees also helps attract and retain top talent in government roles.

Eligibility criteria for the scholarship include age limits of 48 years for structural positions, 50 years for functional positions, and 42 years for participants from remote regions. The application process is being conducted online through the PPSDMAP website.

"This scholarship program is a golden opportunity for civil servants to develop their knowledge and skills through further education," said a spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation. "By pursuing double degrees domestically and internationally, we hope to cultivate transportation experts and leaders who can drive progress in the sector."

The Ministry of Transportation's Beasiswa Rintisan Gelar scholarship demonstrates the government's commitment to human resource development and capacity building within the civil service.
