KIP Merdeka Lecture is a form of education financing guarantee and living expenses assistance to students from underprivileged families to continue their higher education.”

“With the KIP-K program, all students have the right to continue studying at their dream campus and have the same opportunity to be accepted at their favorite faculty. Even the Faculty of Medicine, which is a favorite faculty that is in great demand, also accepts prospective students from the KIP-K program. The cost of education at the Faculty of Medicine is quite high, considering the high value facilities and equipment for the practice of students of the Faculty of Medicine.
