  1. mas tanya ya. Aku email ke Aminef ndak dibales.
    Berarti kalo aku masih kuliah. yang perlu disertakan transkrip dan ijasah SMA yang sudah ditranslate plus transktip sementara kuliahku ???

  2. so how did you burn ur spirit to gain the scholarship beside your boredom facing the failure of gaining scholarship? actually I lose my spirit of pursuing the scholarship, because I cannot pay my own study fees myself and the scholarship is the only thing that I hope for my master degree. What are the main things those make my application impressive? Thank you

  3. Hello, Haeril 🙂

  5. Hello Mas Haeril Halim, saya mau tanya beberapa hal ttg aplikasi community college, dalam aplikasi tertulis: “Please send the three sets of application package to AMINEF”, apakah kita harus kirim satu aplikasi yang asli dan 2 aplikasi fotocopy serta 3 sets persyaratan yang lain? Kedua, apakah boleh share berapa stipend yang diberikan ke penerima award ya? Apakah cukup untuk hidup di semua negara bagian di US atau kita harus siapkan dana tambahan pribadi? Mohon pencerahan…TKs, Beni

  6. salam kenal mas haeril.
    ada beberapa hal yang ingin saya tanyakan. status saya masih mahasiswa tingkat akhir. apa diperbolehkan untuk mendaftar? untuk ijazah sampe dengan deadline sepertinya saya belum bisa mendapatkan ijazah s1 saya karena diperkirakan baru bisa lulus di awal tahun. apa saya bisa melampirkan transkrip nilai s1? atau hanya ijazah sma saja ?
    untuk pengalaman kerja apa perlu meminta surat keterangan dari tempat kerja ?
    terima kasih 🙂
