The Developing Countries Partnership Scholarship, popularly known as the KNB Scholarship, is financial assistance offered by the Indonesian Government to prospective international students from developing countries to pursue a degree (Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral) at one of the universities in Indonesia. This scholarship was initiated at the 10th Conference of Heads of State of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), 1-6 September 1992. The Government of the Republic of Indonesia began offering scholarships to prospective students from NAM member countries the following year.

The regional exclusivity of this scholarship was revoked in 2002 because it had developed global importance. That’s when the scholarship officially changed its name to the Developing Country Partnership Scholarship (KNB) and its recipients were no longer limited to NAM member countries. To date, this scholarship has also been offered to other developing countries in Asia, the Pacific, South America, Africa and Eastern Europe. Ultimately, it is hoped that this scholarship can build people-to-people relations between Indonesia and the recipient country. This aims to develop their future leaders.
