Rossi Maunova Widayat lahir di Mataram, 25 November 1985 merupakan dosen tetap  dengan pangkat akademik lektor sekaligus mantan Ketua Program Studi Ilmu Pemerintahan FISIP Universitas Muhammadiyah Mataram.

As a lecturer at the Muhammadiyah University of Mataram, of course, it has become an obligation to continue my studies at doctoral education (S3), so this is a new experience for me as a student. Get an educational scholarship through JKSG to be able to study by taking a Doctoral (S-3) Islamic Politics program majoring in Psychology at Muhammadiyah University, Yogyakarta.

The JKSG education scholarship program helped me in completing my study period which is now running in year 2 with a dissertation on social media and political party campaign strategies in the 2019 elections in Indonesia

This is a very valuable opportunity for me, because in addition to being able to go back to study at UMY also with the scholarship from JKSG I was given new experience in terms of being given the opportunity to manage journals which later on from some of these experiences will be very useful to be developed at Muhammadiyah University Mataram. Next..

Abitassha Az Zahra, Born on Jl. Dewi Sartika, Kauman, Gombong, Kebumen Regency on May 04, 1997 Starting education in ... elementary, .... junior high, ... high school ... 200 ...

Successfully completed his Bachelor's Degree in the Governmental Science Study Program of FISIP Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta (UMY) in 2019 with a GPA: 3.82 (predicate coumlaude).

My initiative to develop academic and social research and social experiences, both formal and informal, inspired me to join the Jusuf Kalla Government School (JKSG).

Joining JKSG on the contrary becomes a separate solitude, because in addition to being a forum to build networks, relationships and communication as well as a very strategic place to build the quality of Human Resources, increase the capacity of the nation's competitiveness through policies and implementation of JKSG's Work programs in terms of academics, research , public dialogue / seminars, training and community empowerment, it is oriented to the structuring of systems and better governance

I am thankful and supported to get a scholarship given by JKSG to continue education at the UMY Masters of Government Science Program. Hopefully, in the future the knowledge and experience that I get will be beneficial for the Muhammadiyah community, especially for the nation and state. Next...

6. Riska Rahayu, S. IP

Riska Rahayu, born 13 December 1996, HSU, South Kalimantan. The last education was a Bachelor of Government Science UMY class of 2015. Successfully completed the study period for 3.8 years with the title cumlaude in 2019.

Joining JKSG is my own pride considering that there are many great people who inspire, especially in the academic field. Apart from being part of JKSG as a fellowship, getting a scholarship to continue master studies is something that anyone dreams of and is proud of, but there is a great responsibility to be able to continue to make the JKSG name always a dream of many people. Research, national / international seminars, workshops are part of the experience offered by JKSG in self-development especially as part of academics.

I am very grateful and thankful to JKSG who will give me everything (experience and scholarship) so that I can be a part of the UMY Masters of Government Science students. My hope is that it can benefit my knowledge, always explore and develop it can be useful for myself, my family, JKSG and the community. So that it can contribute in the field of education to the state at the national or international level.

7. Christine B Tenorio

Christine B Tenorio, 23 years of age, is a Filipino born and raised in the Philippines. Studying abroad was difficult for her family, but she insisted as she firmly believes that it is an opportunity that cannot be neglected. Christine finished her Bachelor of Arts major in Political Science at La Salle University, Ozamiz City. Christine took Political Science as a preparatory course to pursue her father's dream for her to become a lawyer. However, Christine realised that the field of Political Science was not just a preparatory course for law school but open a lot of opportunities to be close to the reality of the government, society and people. As she believes that teacher is also her calling, she took 18 units of Professional Education subjects. After which, Christine pursued Master of Public Administration ar Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology to have a deeper understanding of how the government functions.

After finishing her Master's degree, Christine taught at La Salle University and University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines as Political Science Instructor. As according to her, the teaching experience developed her to strive learning for her to share her knowledge towards everybody not just for a student. Christine has presented research papers in both national and international conferences. Her research focus is citizen participation in policy-making, which she found out to be missing in policy planning, implementation, and evaluation. Thus, she is looking forward to the new chapter of her life at Yogyakarta as a PhD student of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta under the doctoral program of Political Science.
