Berburu Beasiswa

Waaa sudah lama sekali blog ini tidak diisi, terakhir nulis saat masih jadi student di Adelaide. Sekarang sudah menjalani kehidupan normal sebagai pekerja di salah satu sudut kota Jakarta yang semakin hiruk pikuk setiap harinya. Hari ini sedang terbersit keinginan menulis tentang beasiswa karena banyak dan seringnya mendapat pertanyaan “Bagaimana caranya bisa sekolah di luar negeri?” atau “Bagaimana caranya bisa mendapat beasiswa?”. Sebetulnya jawabannya mudah, cukup satu kata “Daftar”. Yaaa kalau tidak mendaftar, bagaimana bisa mendapatkan beasiswa. Tapi lagi-lagi, ada pertanyaan “Bagaimana caranya mendaftar?” *menghela nafas

Sebenarnya, jika kita punya keinginan hal itu akan sangat mudah. Alhamdulillah saya pernah mendapat beasiswa ADS (Australian Development Scholarship) untuk Master di Adelaide (sekarang nama beasiswa-nya Australian Award) dan juga pernah mendapat beasiswa NFP (Netherlands Fellowship Program) untuk short course selama dua bulan di Belanda.

Jadi, mari kita susun langkah-langkah apa saja yang harus ditempuh:

1. Tetapkan niat ingin mendaftar kemana. Banyak beasiswa yang ditawarkan, mulai dari Australia, New Zealand, Eropa, Asia (Jepang, Singapura), Amerika Serikat, atau bahkan negara-negara di kawasan Timur Tengah. Kita harus fokus ingin daftar yang mana, karena jika ingin daftar semuanya dan akhirnya gak fokus malah kebablasan. Saya sendiri waktu itu untuk beasiswa master, daftar ADS dan DAAD (beasiswa pemerintah Jerman), dan Alhamdulillah lulus untuk ADS.

2. Jika sudah fokus ingin mendapatkan beasiswa yang mana, lihat dan cermati dengan teliti persyaratan beasiswa tersebut. Kemudian download application form-nya dan isi form tersebut. Jawab pertanyaan pada form dengan sebenar-benarnya, kemudian antara pertanyaan dan jawaban harus nyambung, jangan sampe ditanya A kemudian dijawab Z. Sebaiknya konsultasikan jawaban yang sudah ditulis dengan orang yang pernah mendapat beasiswa tersebut. Tapi jangan sampe maksa ya ketika mau konsultasi, coba diminta tolong baik-baik, pasti pada mau kok mengoreksi application form-nya. Harap diingat setiap orang mempunyai kesibukan berbeda-beda.

3. Persiapkan persyaratan beasiswa tersebut. Misal untuk Australian Award, persyaratan sbb:

 Complete documentation required in your application:

  • Birth certificate
  • KTP
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • IELTS or TOEFL English language test results* obtained no earlier than 2013 (Original)
  • Certified University Certificate (Ijazah)
  • Certified University Academic Transcript (Transkrip Nilai)
  • Masters applicants must include S1 university documentation;
  • PhD applicants must include S2 university documentation;
  • PhD applicants must include a reference from an S2 supervisor;
  • PhD applicants must include Research Proposal Details

*TOEFL Prediction Test is not acceptable and submission of this test will make your application INELIGIBLE

Additional documentation required if shortlisted for an interview:

  • Recent photograph (3cm x 4cm);
  • Certified English language translation of Indonesian university certificate (ijazah);
  • Certified English language translation of Indonesian university academic transcript (transkrip nilai);
  • List of relevant publications (if applicable);
  • Certified English language translation of birth certificate.

Note: Saat ini pendaftaran untuk Australian Award sedang dibuka sampai 18 Juli 2014 (http://australiaawardsindo.or.id/).

Karena biasanya persyaratan tersebut cukup ribet, sebaiknya disiapkan jauh-jauh hari sebelumnya. Misal untuk kemampuan bahasa inggris, sebaiknya hasil tes IELTS atau TOEFL sudah disiapkan (ingat ya, bukan prediksi TOEFL karena tidak akan diterima).

4. Baca kembali semua form yang sudah diisi (jangan sampai ada salah tulis) dan teliti kembali semua persyaratan, apa ada yang terlewat atau tidak.

5. Siap untuk submit beasiswa, ingat deadline-nya, jika deadline tanggal 18 Juli, jangan submit tanggal 19 Juli yaa (jelas-jelas tidak akan diterima).

6. Jangan lupa minta restu sama orang tua dan juga berdoa semoga mendapat yang terbaik.

 

Usaha mendapatkan beasiswa bukan hal mudah atau murah, namun semua orang bisa mendapatkannya asal punya kemauan yang keras. Lalu, mengapa saya tulis, mendapatkan beasiswa bukan hal yang murah? Karena memang dibutuhkan biaya yang cukup lumayan, misalnya untuk menerjemahkan dokumen (akte kelahiran, ijazah dll), lalu untuk tes bahasa inggris (biaya tes IELTS bisa mencapai hampir 2 juta rupiah). Tapi jangan sampai hal itu menyurutkan keinginan untuk sekolah lagi, dengan segala usaha, in sha Allah semuanya bisa dilewati dengan mudah dan mendapatkan hasil yang sepadan.

Selamat berburu beasiswa!

Update

My flat, Feb 12 after midnight, I mean Feb 13 😀

It’s been so long since the last time I updated my blog. Cos I still having my summer holiday. Well, actually my holiday has ended since I joined summer school 😀

Hmmm … I visited Melbourne Jan 19-27. But somehow I was too lazy to write my journey. Of course I had many beautiful moments there, including watching Australian Open 2011 live in Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Park. It was amazing to see Roger Federer … Terpersona lah pokoknya liat Federer maen 🙂 However I’m not going to write my Melbourne experience, it’s late now in Adelaide. Time to bed!

Places and Traveling

I love traveling! My friends definitely know it! I always love beach and recently I love an airport. I have no particular reason I love places because sometimes it’s hard to explain the reason. (Why did I keep use “love” word? Just to emphasize the word, I think :P)

This month I went to Airport (Adelaide Airport in particular) for several times. Pick up some friends or just got there to flight to other Aussie’s states. I like to see many dramas in Airport. I can see people hug each other (or even kiss :P),  smile and laugh when they meet or even cry when they have to say goodbye. Yeah, Airport is the place to be either happy or sad!

Mostly, I’ll spend my time reading a book during the boarding time. That’s my tips, just bring a book, a light “easyreading” novel, so I can sneak out of my book when I’m bored and start playing games with my mind, guessing where will people go? I keep asking a not important question to my “not straight A”  brain, “where will they go?” when I saw a family who trip together. Or will they go somewhere for holiday or just to visit other family members? Or if I saw any single traveler (like me), what pop up in my mind is where will he/she go? Is she/he a backpacker, a tourist, a student or just an ordinary unimportant person (like me, again!) 😛

The most “not so” important in many “unimportant” questions is “who will sit next to me?” Does she/he will unlucky enough to sit next to me? Or will she/he say something like “hrrgghhh … why should I sit next to her” (of course mumbling in their heart :P, luckily I don’t have to hear that!)

So, if I get on board before someone else in my row, I always pull out my book from my bag and start reading and hoping that the one who will sit next to me is a charming prince hahahaha …. 😆 In contrast, the “imaginary” charming prince will feel so bad that he has to sit next to me.

But let’s back to reality, the truth is the charming prince never come, indeed … what happen next is …

the person who sit next to me is probably:

– an old man with not so good smell (my journey turns out to disaster during the flight)

– a girl with her friend (it means they are two girls who will have unimportant girl’s chat during the flight and probably talk about me in foreign language and start talking why should I sit next to them. While I feel relieve that I don’t understand what they are talking about :D)

– a couple (hhrrggghhhh ….. another disaster!)

– the other two strangers passengers … (feel relieve that we don’t know each other)

On top of it, I have a number one unimportant question, sometimes I wanna feel how does it feel to have a sit in a business class? 😀 Maybe I will “kampring” enough to press all the buttons and don’t know what to do until a cabin crew come to save me hahaha …. 😆

That’s it! I love airport, such a perfect stranger for others!

Can’t Stop Now – Keane

Keane – Can’t Stop Now

I noticed tonight that the world has been turning
While I’ve been stuck here dithering around
Well I know I said I’d wait around till you need me
But I have to go, I hate to let you down
But I can’t stop now
I’ve got troubles of my own
Cause I’m short on time
I’m lonely
And I’m too tired to talk

I noticed tonight that the world has been turning
While I’ve been stuck here withering away
Well I know I said I wouldn’t leave you behind
But I have to go, it breaks my heart to say

That I can’t stop now
I’ve got troubles of my own
Cause I’m short on time
I’m lonely
And I’m too tired to talk

No one back home
I’ve got troubles of my own
And I can’t slow down
For no one in town
And I can’t stop now

And I can’t slow down
For no one in town
And I can’t stop now
For no one

The motion keeps my heart running
The motion keeps my heart running
The motion keeps my heart running
The motion keeps my heart running

Welcome to Laisya : A New Hope

This is a blog about my journey, my story, and my "curhat". "Laisya : A New Hope" is inspired by "Star Wars IV : A New Hope". (I love Star Wars Saga :D). This is my new blog to replace "Laisya and Her World". Well, actually I made this blog long time ago, before I made "Laisya and Her World". However, for certain reason, I have to leave "Laisya and Her World" and start this new (but old) blog :)

More about me??

Now, I live in Jakarta but I'll always love Bandung as my hometown. I used to live in Adelaide, South Australia for two years due to my study (master degree). I like reading, swimming, watching movies, and travelling. I have a dream to visit all interesting places in this planet. I hope my dream will come true someday. Am I a dreamer? Maybe, but why not?? Sometimes I envy TV reporters whom travel around the world for free, and they were paid. Gee, that is a Dream Job! :D Daydream? Yeaah, whatever lah :P.

Too many "dream" words here, maybe I actually should put "Laisya and Her Dream" as a blog title :D.
