(MENAFN) Mashael al Musleh, a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Arts Qatar, has been granted the prestigious Indonesian Art and Cultural Scholarship (IACS). Selected among participants from 37 different countries, Al Musleh will spend three months in Indonesia, from June 1 to August 18, immersing herself in the country's arts and culture.
The IACS provides a unique opportunity for recipients to study and experience Indonesian arts and culture firsthand. Participants not only engage in academic learning but also integrate into the local community, allowing them to fully appreciate the richness and diversity of Indonesian culture. H.E. Ridwan Hassan, the Ambassador of Indonesia to Qatar, highlighted the significance of the Qatari participant's presence in the program, especially as Qatar and Indonesia are currently celebrating the Qatar-Indonesia Years of Culture.
The ambassador expressed his hope that the scholarship would foster stronger cultural ties between the two nations and lead to the emergence of more friends of Indonesia from Qatar. The IACS aims to establish lasting connections and understanding between different cultures, enhancing bilateral relations and promoting cultural exchanges.
During the scholarship program, the awardees will be assigned to culturally vibrant regions in Indonesia, where they will delve into various aspects of Indonesian arts, languages, and culture. At the culmination of the program, all the scholarship recipients will be invited to the presidential palace in Jakarta to commemorate Indonesian Independence Day on August 17, a momentous occasion that celebrates the country's freedom and heritage.
