Twin Scholarship Programme


Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia — Tilburg University, Netherlands

  1. Framework

The Board of the Frans Seda Foundation has taken the initiative to initiate a Twin Scholarship Programme, aimed at promoting interaction among peers still in study, i.e. twinning Indonesian and Dutch students through short-time joint research projects. Three twin-scholarships will be made available annually to three MA-level research teams, each consisting of one Indonesian and one Dutch student. The scholarship comprises an amount for the costs of travel and insurance as well as a living allowance, enable the students to do a common research project to be completed in a period of six months.


  1. Time frame

As the scholarship programme is open to Master students only, joint studies can only be conducted in the period January – June of each year as the Dutch Master programme has a duration of one year only with the first semester reserved for classes. The programme therefore starts in January with three twin-scholarships of 5 to 6 months, of which part will be conducted in Indonesia and part in The Netherlands. Cooperating universities are Atma Jaya University and University of Indonesia in Jakarta, Indonesia and Tilburg University in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Time must keep free for writing the outcomes of the joint project.


  1. Three teams

Three Indonesian and three Dutch professors have accepted the invitation to act as thesis supervising lecturers, teaming up with their colleague and selecting each one talented student interested in doing a short and joint master level project.


  1. Status of the participating students

Atma Jaya University and Tilburg University have decided to a Memorandum of Understanding. As a consequence, students involved in exchange programmes enjoy special facilities (for details, see below). The Memorandum of Understanding between the Universitas Indonesia and Tilburg University has expired. Maybe it can simply be prolonged. If not, a solution would be starting an Agreement of Implementation between the Department of Sociology/the Department of Strategic Management of the UI and Tilburg University (or a faculty, school or department, in this case the faculty, school or department to which Herman Beck belongs).


  1. Application for the participating universities

Tilburg University

Tilburg University has developed an online application system. The student has to fill out an online application form and send that in together with all required documents. Application form and further information can be found via

The International Office at Tilburg University will take care for the immigration formalities (visa) and prepare the enrollment. It will also act as a mediator for health insurance to two companies (AON and IPS) and finding living accommodation. The health insurance includes travel insurance and third person liability insurance. The visa includes travel to all Schengen countries among them Germany and Belgium but not the United Kingdom.


Atma Jaya University/Universitas Indonesia

As the issuing of a visa for the Indonesian student coming to Tilburg is an easy and quick procedure, the procedure in Indonesia takes far more time, up to three and sometimes even four months. The University has to apply with the Ministry of Education and Culture which after agreement will be sent a letter to the Department of Immigration of the Ministry of Law. This department will inform the Indonesian Embassy in The Hague. In general, exchange students will receive an extendable visa of 90 days.

The visa application is part of the academic application. Further information as well as the application form can be found by mailing to email address:

Both Atma Jaya University and Universitas Indonesia will be instrumental in finding housing, in both cases off campus.
