Riady Scholarship

Prospective master's degree students who are citizens of Indonesia and other countries within Southeast Asia and have a commitment to teaching, education management, or educational policy are eligible to apply for the new Riady Scholars Fund. The Riady family supports education worldwide, contributes to Teachers College's Annual Fund, and manages the largest private education foundation in Southeast Asia, covering nearly 40,000 students. The family has also contributed $1 million to the Columbia University Global Center in Beijing. The Riady Scholars Fund will provide tuition and room and board for qualified recipients, for an annual fellowship of approximately $70,000 per year (preference will be given to citizens of Indonesia).

Those interested in applying for the Riady Scholars Fund must submit a fellowship personal statement (in addition to the statement of purpose one submits with their TC Application for Admission). Applicants must also submit the Riady Scholars Fund Interest Form. Please read through the Interest Form carefully and make sure that you meet the stated requirements.
These two items must be submitted to enrollmentservices@tc.columbia.edu by May 1st, 2014.

Please note: students must successfully complete and submit their application for admission to Teachers College before they may apply for the Riady Scholarship.
