ALGORITMA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM WORTH RP 8 BILLION REOPENED FOR INDONESIAN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
This opportunity is open to all students in Indonesia, to get access to quality data science education.
In recent years, the role of data talent has become a vital and key profession in the development of the digital economy. Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN), Erick Thohir said that by 2030, Indonesia will need 17 million workers who are literate in technology and data. If at this time Indonesia is not supported by competent data talent, it is feared that Indonesia will be left behind in facing global disruption.
The younger generation is considered capable of supporting and driving Indonesia's economic growth in the future. From the 2022 BPS population census data, there are 44,696,557 Indonesians who are in the young age group. In the next few years, they must be ready to meet the needs of the existing labor market by increasing their skills so that Indonesia can make the most of this young generation by 2030.
On a mission to reduce the gap between the availability of data practitioners and industry needs, Algoritma Data Science School, a pioneer in data science education in Indonesia, has reopened registration for the Apprenticeship Scholarship Program worth Rp 8 billion.
