EducationUSA Mentorship Program represents a platform where U.S. officers or Indonesian graduates of U.S. colleges and universities guide young Indonesians who want to study in the United States. The goal of the program is to facilitate the completion of successful university applications.

The Mentorship Program is a series of five workshops conducted over a period of 5 months in cooperation with a group of mentors, all graduates of U.S. universities. Workshop materials and assignments will be available to all participants as online courses. Mentors will be able to follow the progress of their mentees online as well as provide feedback and guidance on assignments.

Mentees will be matched with a mentor who can be a graduate from a university or program of interest to the mentee. Participating mentees are required to attend workshops and complete assignments in order to maximize the benefits of the program.

This access to one-on-one mentoring has proven to be very effective, adding 42 new Indonesian students to study in the U.S. this year. Currently some 50 students are taking advantage of mentorship program, and we still have room for you.
