POSCO Scholarship awardee since 2019

 

Before getting this scholarship, to be honest, I have experienced problems in terms of economics, related to tuition fees and living expenses during college, so it requires me to work part time to be able to meet the cost of living during college. However, after I received this scholarship, thank God the situation changed 180 °, previously I was very difficult in terms of finances. After receiving this scholarship I am grateful that I can meet my tuition fees and living expenses during college, and part of the scholarship money I regularly set aside to help my family's economy, help people who are experiencing difficulties, and also research needs for the competitions I participate in.

 

I am very grateful because from getting this POSCO Scholarship, I was able to achieve further on a national and international scale which in the end I was crowned the 1st Achievement Student at Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University in 2020 and also delivered me to my dream country.

 

The program of this Posco scholarship, I also met other Posco scholarship recipients from other universities in Indonesia as well as students from South Korea, who of course all of them are great people who I admire.

 

​My deepest gratitude to the provider of this Posco Scholarship to me, hopefully this scholarship is a blessing for me personally and also to many people. Aamiin ya Rabbal'alamin.

 

​Message: I hope that in the future this scholarship will become the most popular scholarship in Indonesia, as well as a reference for other scholarships related to programs that have been implemented. Hopefully, Posco scholarship can flap its wings further so that the Awardees become great people who will lead the world in the future.

Name : M. Lutfi Chakim

2018 POSCO Asia Fellow(Studying in Korea)/SNU

Researcher, Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia

 

Continuing my master's degree at Seoul National University (SNU), South Korea was a big and best decision for me. This dream of studying in the land of ginseng has come true because of a scholarship from the POSCO TJ Park Foundation, an institution that is very dedicated to expanding academic and cultural networks in Asia.

 

As a leading university in South Korea, studying at SNU has provided me with broad insights into the field of law on a global scale. Therefore, after completing the master's program at SNU, I can apply the lessons and skills I got from SNU to my institution, namely the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia.

 

​During my 2 (two) years of study in Seoul, I have had many opportunities to meet and learn from outstanding colleagues from the POSCO Asia Fellowship program. Another important experience is that I was involved in research at the Association of Asian Constitutional Courts and Equivalent Institutions (AACC), Secretariat for Research and Development, which is located in the Korean Constitutional Court. Following this scientific research program has increased my knowledge and experience which can increase my capacity as a leading researcher in the field of law.

 

​I believe that the experience of studying in Korea has changed me for the better and can contribute to the protection of human rights through my duties as a Researcher at the Constitutional Court. Therefore, I hope that more talented young people are willing to take up the challenge of continuing their higher education in Korea with the POSCO TJ Park Foundation scholarships.
