Tanoto Foundation’s scholarships enable thousands of motivated young adults, particularly from underprivileged families to attend university and have a better future. Supported by this program, we aim to Indonesia’s future leaders who are strong, competent, and resilient.

In addition to taking care of tuition fee and living allowance, Tanoto Foundation provides students with a whole range of enrichment and support program:

  1. Soft skills, such as communication, teamwork, English writing and motivational workshops.
  2. Internship opportunities at private companies.
  3. Through the Tanoto Scholars Association (TSA), Tanoto Scholars are encouraged to participate in community projects, as a way of giving back.
  4. Annual Tanoto Scholars Gathering, an annual event for networking, team building, and an opportunity to meet the Founders and trustees of Tanoto Foundation.
  5. Counseling, for those whose academic performance falls below standard.



Teachers in this school are happy with their job. The school has many activities despite the limited resources that the schools have. With Tanoto Foundation’s help, our teaching technique is now comparable to the teachers out there. We do things differently now. Learning activities becomes fun and exciting.

Children became more attentive during learning sessions. They are very happy with the playground facility in the center’s backyard. The spacious classroom also helps teachers to create learning corners for students activities. Thank you, Tanoto Foundation
