    Dear University Representatives,

    We would like to take this opportunity to inform and invite you to be participating in our upcoming 2018 EducationUSA Southeast Asia Graduate Fairs in Indonesia on September 13 in Malang and September 16 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
    To find out more about this fair and to register, please see information below from EducationUSA, US Embassy Jakarta or please visit https://edusa-seagrad18.eventbrite.com. We very much appreciate if you can participate or disseminate this information to your Higher Education Representative contacts.
    The U.S. Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Mr. Joseph R. Donovan Jr said that his highest priority as U.S. Ambassador is to strengthen the partnership between the United States and Indonesia. One of the most meaningful and productive ways to do this is by building long-lasting connections through international educational exchange. He encourages more Indonesian students to study in the U.S., and more Americans to study in Indonesia.

    Our combined efforts have resulted in a nearly 26% increase in the number of Indonesians studying in United States since the U.S.-Indonesia strategic partnership was formed in 2010. According to the 2017 Open Doors report, nearly 9,000 Indonesians are studying at U.S. higher education institutions.  This is the highest number in a decade since 2005! We want to continue to increase that number by holding this upcoming Graduate Fairs. Feedback from prior participants in our EducationUSA Fairs consistently has shown a high level of satisfaction with the overall value and results, and many recruiters return annually to engage with EducationUSA, our embassies and consulates at the fairs. During the 2018 EducationUSA Southeast Asia Fairs in Indonesia in February, over 3,000 prospective students attended in Jakarta, Medan, and Surabaya and met with representatives of forty U.S. universities.


    Indonesia was named one of the top emerging markets for U.S. college international recruitment in a study by World Education Services (WES), a non-profit that focuses on helping international students on their path to higher education in the U.S. and Canada. Indonesia was ranked the third most promising market after Brazil and Vietnam. A desire for a better education driven by a rapidly growing economy in Indonesia and a large percentage of the population being in their early twenties contribute to the reasons why Indonesia is a growing market.


    We would like to see you in Indonesia. If you have any questions or would like to discuss these events further, please contact
