Esri Indonesia fellowship program provides tech research funding for students

Jan 15, 2016 -- Eight students from some of Indonesia’s leading universities and institutions have received academic grants to support research on how advanced smart mapping technologies can help address current challenges facing various communities.

The respective grants come as part of a fellowship program, introduced by leading geospatial solutions provider Esri Indonesia, and are awarded to select tertiary students in their final year of study – allowing them to better utilise Geographic Information System (GIS) technology during the completion of their major projects.

Esri Indonesia CEO Bima Priadi said, “Today’s youth are very creative in using technology to address real-world problems in impactful ways.”

“By supporting them in their respective endeavours, not only are we growing the country's pool of geospatial experts, but we are also opening up opportunities to explore innovative approaches to solving issues in our local communities,” Mr Priadi said.

“The awardees of the fellowship program have really pushed the boundaries of current geospatial thinking with their research projects.

“From optimising Bandung’s public transport system with smart mapping to using advanced spatial analytics to develop an effective flood control program – these projects highlight that the potential of GIS technology is limitless and fuelled by the imagination of those who use it,” he said.

The following students received grants as part of this year’s fellowship program:

  • Ajeng Salma Yarista, Bandung Institute of Technology
  • Alify Raissa Octaviani, Bandung Institute of Technology
  • Auliantya Ayurin Putri, Gadjah Mada University
  • Puji Nur Hidayah, Gadjah Mada University
  • Kadek Aldrin Wiguna, Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology
  • Robby Arafad, Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology
  • Pratama Putra, Hasanuddin University
  • Reski Rafidah, Hasanuddin University

Auliantya Ayurin Putri – a grant recipient from Gadjah Mada University who is also Indonesia’s first Esri Young Scholars Award winner – feels grateful to have such support during this early stage of her career.

“Both our university and Esri Indonesia appreciate the spatial work of students, and the fact we have this kind of support behind us makes me excited about my next research project,” she said.

Hasanuddin University student and fellow recipient Reski Rafidah added, “This program is very helpful for thesis research, and will encourage more students to utilise GIS to make a difference in the community.”
