Bureau of Cooperation and Public Relations (BKH) of Universitas PGRI Madiun (UNIPMA) held an overseas scholarship seminar in Graha Cendekia, Friday, May 4th 2018. With the theme "Tips and Tricks for Achieving an Australian-Australian Scholarship", the seminar presents three speakers who receive foreign scholarships. The three speakers are Javas Afrizal Pratama from IDP Indonesia, Agita Risma Nurhikmawati an Alumni of Fullbright Program FLTA-Language Agency who teaches Indonesian at Columbia University and is also a lecturer of English Education (PBI) UNIPMA, and Hira Maryana an alumni of PBI UNIPMA as an FLTA candidate - Language Agency who will depart in 2018.

The event which was attended by 271 participants was opened by a speech from the Head of BKH, Sigit Ricahyono. In his speech he explained that UNIPMA is intensifying the campus internationalization program. The nearest program is the teaching internship program (SEA Teacher) devoted to the students of the Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, and the industry internship program (SEA TVET) devoted to the students of the Faculty of Economics and Business and the Faculty of Engineering. To prepare for it, students need to know about the tips and tricks in order to achieve self-success in the international world, especially in the field of education.

Tips and tricks provided by the three speakers emphasize on self preparation. A scholarship cannot be achieved easily and do require great intention and persistence. A well done preparation from administration, emotion, and experience will be very helpful in achieving the scholarship.
