Buku Antimainstream Scholarship Destination

Mungkin banyak yang tidak tahu bahwa di luar sana bertebaran beasiswa-besiswa yang masih terasa asing di telinga. Mungkin banyak yang tidak tahu pula bahwa ada negara non-mainstream yang mempunyai kualitas pendidikan yang tinggi di dunia. Dan mungkin pula banyak yang tidak sadar bahwa memburu beasiswa-beasiswa anti-mainstream mempunyai keuntungan: lebih sedikit pesaingnya!

Sebagai pemegang peringkat ke 4 dari seluruh Negara Eropa dalam kategori riset dan inovasi, Belgia menyediakan beasiswa khusus bagi negara-negara yang menjadi prioritasnya, termasuk Indonesia.  Beasiswa yang tersedia pun dalam beragam bentuk, seperti beasiswa full master dan doctoral, beasiswa riset, beasiswa pertukaran pelajar dan sandwich program, serta beasiswa short course.  Buku “Anti-mainstream Scholarship Destination: Belajar dari Jantung Benua Eropa” ini menyajikan beragam informasi mengenai beasiswa-beasiswa tersebut beserta langkah-langkah praktis untuk meraihnya. Beragam contoh motivation letter, curriculum vitae, email untuk mengubungi calon promotor disajikan oleh para peraih beasiswa di negara penghasil cokelat terenak di dunia ini. Informasi mengenai kampus-kampus unggulan di Belgia ini juga disertakan di dalamnya. Tak hanya itu, buku ini juga memuat informasi mengenai peluang Au Pair dan cara untuk memulainya.

Ragam kehidupan, makanan, minuman, pergaulan, liburan hingga fashion ala mahasiswa Eropa diceritakan pula di sini. Peluang aplikasi teknologi-teknologi terkini Belgia yang dapat diterapkan di Indonesia akan menambah keyakinan pembaca untuk segera memburu beasiswa-beasiswa anti-mainstream yang disediakan Ibu Kota Uni Eropa ini.

*Buku Antimainstream Scholarship Destination adalah buku yang ditulis oleh PPI Belgia yang didukung penuh oleh KBRI Brussel dan para alumni yang pernah menempuh studi di Belgia.

***Besar harapan saya, agar buku ini dapat menjadi  inspirasi para pembaca  dan siapa pun yang berminat menuntut ilmu di Belgia. Lebih jauh, seperti halnya tokoh Minke  dalam karya  Pak Pram, yang terus  menerus  belajar  tentang kebesaran  peradaban  Eropa  yang gilang  gemilang   namun tetap mengabdikan  kemampuan   dan   pengetahuannya   untuk mengabdi   pada   bangsanya,  begitu pun   saya  mengangankan   agar  para   pelajar   dan mahasiswa Indonesia di Belgia dapat menggunakan pemahaman dan mengamalkan  ilmunya untuk   membangun   Indonesia  menjadi  lebih  baik. Semoga para  pelajar  dan  mahasiswa Indonesia  dapat  terus  bersemangat  menimba   ilmu  dan juga  bersemangat   membangun Indonesia  dari segala sisi, sambil terus turut aktif  memperkenalkan mitra baik Indonesia ke berbagai kalangan (Kutipan Pengantar dari Bapak Yuri O. Thamrin – Duta Besar Republik Indonesia untuk Belgia, Luksemburg dan Uni Eropa)***.
