Freeport Siapkan 1.000.000 US$, Untuk Beasiswa Pelajar Papua

Kitorangpapuanews.com, Jayapura – PT Freeport Indonesia bersama dengan American Indonesia Exchange Foundation (AMINEF) memberikan beasiswa untuk pelajar Papua dan Papua Barat yang berprestasi untuk menimba ilmu di Amerika Serikat. Dana yang disiapkan untuk program ini sebesar US$ 1 juta.

Program ini dinamakan beasiswa Community College Initiative (CCI), yang diperuntukkan bagi pelajar Papua dan Papua Barat. Mereka akan belajar selama dua semester di sejumlah perguruan tinggi (community college) di Amerika Serikat. Dana yang diberikan tersebut berlaku selama periode 2016-2020.

“Melalui program CCI, para pelajar dari Papua dapat mempelajari berbagai bidang keilmuan, seperti pertanian, teknik, manajemen bisnis, pendidikan anak usia dini, teknologi informasi, media, pariwisata, manajemen perhotelan, dan bidang-bidang lainnya,” kata VP Corporate Communication Freeport Indonesia, Riza Pratama dalam keterangannya, Selasa (25/7/2017).

Tahun ini, ada 8 putra putri Papua yang mendapatkan beasiswa. Mereka adalah Irics Tabuni, Denny Tebay, Yanuarius Dumuntu, Raflyna Wayoi, Lenny Zilfa, Robertho Yohanis Monim, Evellyne Mandosir, dan Sarlotha Mandosir.

Program Beasiswa untuk Inisiatif Community College mencakup tiket pesawat pulang-pergi ke AS, biaya hidup selama program Bahasa Inggris, akademik, komponen program pelatihan praktek; biaya pendidikan; program manfaat kesehatan, dan kegiatan peningkatan budaya.

Salah satu penerima beasiswa CCI ini tahun lalu, yang telah kembali ke tanah air adalah Lazarus Bugaleng. Ia adalah putera pertama suku Amungme yang meraih gelar sarjana pertambangan, juga dengan beasiswa dana kemitraan Freeport.

Dikatakannya, beasiswa yang diberikan Freeport sangatlah berarti bagi penerimanya, khususnya bagi dirinya yang berasal dari suku Amungle, Papua. “Luar biasa. Beasiswa ini memberikan saya banyak pengalaman  baru. Ini bisa jadi bekal kami memperluas keilmuan kami,” katanya.

AMINEF bekerjasama dengan Freeport sejak tahun 1998 untuk memberikan kesempatan belajar ke Amerika Serikat bagi pelajar dari Papua melalui beasiswa Fulbright dan program lainnya.

“Sejak tahun 1998 hingga 2016, 62 pelajar asal Papua dan timur Indonesia telah tercatat sebagai penerima beasiswa pendidikan di Amerika Serikat melalui kerjasama AMINEF-Freeport.” Ujar Riza. (**)

  20. I have noticed that over the course of creating a relationship with real estate homeowners, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in every real estate contract, a percentage is paid. Finally, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the commission payment. Rather, they struggle to earn the commission by way of doing a agent’s work. In the process, they devote their money plus time to perform, as best they will, the jobs of an adviser. Those responsibilities include uncovering the home via marketing, introducing the home to willing buyers, building a sense of buyer desperation in order to induce an offer, organizing home inspections, controlling qualification check ups with the lender, supervising fixes, and assisting the closing of the deal.
