The University of Virginia Darden School of Business announces the Indonesia Fellowship, a full scholarship to Darden created through a generous gift from an anonymous donor.

The Indonesia Fellowship will enable top talent from Indonesia to attend Darden, which offers the No.1-ranked education experience in the world (The Economist, 2011-17). The fellowship, originally created in 2012, is now offered as a scholarship providing up to the full cost of attendance for an academically qualified Indonesian national with proven need for financial support. Selected students can attend Darden’s full-time MBA program or Executive MBA program, with an option for the Global Executive MBA format.

“In a world of astonishing complexity and rapid change, Darden develops global leaders from an inspiring premise: Business combined with purpose will improve the world,” said Darden Dean Scott Beardsley. “We are incredibly grateful for the donor’s generosity inspiring the next generation of leaders from Indonesia to pursue their purpose.”

“This is an incredibly generous offer for talented students from Indonesia,” said Dawna Clarke, Darden’s executive director of admissions and financial aid. “The level of funding the fellowship provides exceeds that provided by other scholarships in the market, and it gives deserving students the opportunity to study at one of the world’s top business schools.”

The Indonesia Fellowship will cover for recipients the cost of Darden tuition and fees, course materials, health insurance, computer, living and travel expenses.
