WISH (World Indonesia Scholarship) Festival is a program organized by 3 communities that have special attention for scholarship seekers in Indonesia, namely Mata Garuda (LPDP alumni union), Scholarship Friends and Indonesia. The WISH Festival itself is held for the first time in 2018 and takes place at the Indonesian Ministry of Education, South Jakarta. With the success of last year’s event, this year the organizers will hold a similar festival scholarship in 21 cities and are expected to become the biggest scholarship cast in Indonesia.
International Test Center (ITC) as one of the stakeholders in the world seeking scholarships, also supports WISH Festival 2019 as a strategic partner in the provision of international standard English language certification for participants. The importance of having a TOEFL iBT and TOEIC certification as a document requirement in the process of applying for a scholarship is well recognized by the organizer. Therefore, the ITC made an activity in a series of events aimed at introducing deeper into the certification. The activity is a Workshop and Simulation TOEFL® iBT & TOEIC®.
At the end of April 2019, the WISH Festival will begin. The first city to be held was Surabaya, East Java and continued with Padang, West Sumatra on April 27, 2019. There are 21 cities that will be visited by the WISH Festival 2019, ITC will held workshops and exhibition booths in 14-15 selected cities.
Hopefully, with TOEFL iBT and TOEIC Workshop, scholarship seekers get to know more about the English language certificate TOEIC (R) and TOEFL (R) iBT which is official or valid from ETS and also prepare themselves to the fullest before taking the English certification.
