Discussed during the meeting was the possibilities of having Binus English department students to do internship at AMINEF and for Binus to provide  IT-related consultancy to AMINEF. Quoted from its website, AMINEF is :

“The American Indonesian Exchange Foundation (AMINEF), established in 1992, is a bi-national non-profit foundation that administers the Fulbright Program in Indonesia. The Fulbright Program through AMINEF annually awards more than 120 scholarships to Americans and Indonesians to study, teach, or conduct original research in a variety of disciplines. Grants are competitive, comprehensive, and generally cover tuition and fees, textbook allowance, monthly maintenance, international airfare, and health insurance (http://www.aminef.or.id/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3&Itemid=135) .”

We hope that the meeting would mark the start of a very close professional relationship in the near future. [.]
