A total of 25 students of Ahmad Dahlan University (UAD) Yogyakarta received educational assistance in the form of scholarships from Bank Syariah Mandiri (BSM). This UAD partner provided educational assistance of 100 million rupiah. From the description delivered by Drs. Hendro Setyono, S.E., M.Sc. as the Head of Student Affairs BIMAWA, scholarship students had passed a rigorous selection process.
Officially, this educational aid was given to UAD Rector, and was directly given to the students. The distribution of the scholarship was done in the main courtroom of Campus 1 UAD on Jln. Kapas 9, Semaki, Yogyakarta on Monday (12/2/018). Also attending the event was the UAD Rector, Dr. Kasiyarno, M.Hum. who was accompanied by Vice Rector III, Dr. Abdul Fadlil, M.T.
"Thanks to BSM, we have selected students based on their track record when studying in UAD. Hopefully this educational aid enhances students’ motivation in their study and improves their achievement," said Kasiyarno.
In addition, he expected the students to actively participate in extracurricular activities. From these activities, students can get Certificate of Diploma Companion (SKPI) which will be useful when they graduate later.
"UAD graduates must have skills. SKPI is seen by anyone who will employ the students. In the future, we plan to continue providing the best service for students, especially for students to have international certificate."
This BSM scholarship is the third scholarship received by UAD. Every year, there are several scholarships awarded by UAD and its partners to improve the quality and achievement of the students. (ard)
