Miami Dade College to Create Partnership for Study Abroad Program in Indonesia

Indonesia study abroad

Miami, September 1, 2010 - The U.S. Department of State, through the Institute of International Education, recently awarded Miami Dade College (MDC) a grant to launch a U.S.-Indonesia Partnership Program for Study Abroad Capacity (USIPP).

MDC is the only community college among six U.S. institutions selected to receive the grant and collaborate with six Indonesian institutions to develop study abroad programs.  The grant is for $10,000.

The two-year grant will help fund travel for MDC faculty and administration to Indonesia, as well as host members of participating Indonesian institutes to establish a partnership to create a future study abroad program. In addition, MDC will be instrumental in building the requisite capacity at Indonesian institutions through workshops, study tours, seed grants, and research publications. 

MDC currently offers dozens of exciting study abroad opportunities all over the world, such as in Italy, Costa Rica, China, France, Germany, Mexico, and many more.
