Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (Lembaga Pengelola dana Pendidikan) (LPDP)
LPDP is committed to preparing future leaders and professionals and encouraging innovation for the realization of a prosperous, democratic, and just Indonesia. LPDP organizes a master / doctoral scholarship program for Indonesia's best sons and daughters, commercial / implementative research funding to encourage innovation, and rehabilitation of educational facilities damaged by natural disasters.
The 1945 Constitution mandates that at least twenty percent of the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBN) is for the education function. The Government and the Indonesian Parliament in 2010 through Law Number 2 of 2010 concerning the 2010 APBN-P agreed that some of the funds from the allocation of the education function fund in the APBN-P were made as the National Education Development Fund (DPPN) managed by an endowment management mechanism ( endowment fund ) by a Public Service Agency (BLU).
In 2011, the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Education and Culture agreed that the management of the DPPN and the utilization of the results of the management of the funds would be carried out by the Ministry of Finance but the officials and employees were a combination of Ministry of Finance employees and Ministry of Education and Culture employees.
The Minister of Finance through Regulation of the Minister of Finance (PMK) Number 252 / PMK.01 / 2011 dated December 28, 2011 established the Organization and Governance of the Education Fund Management Institution as a non-echelon institution that is directly responsible to the Minister of Finance and is guided by the policies determined by the LPDP Trustees Board (Minister of Education and Culture, Minister of Finance and Minister of Religion). Through the Decree of the Minister of Finance (KMK) Number 18 / KMK.05 / 2012 dated January 30, 2012, the LPDP was designated as a government agency implementing the financial patterns of Badana Public Services.
