The Dexa Science Scholarship Award is a scholarship program for Master’s studies with full financing. The awardees were given the freedom to choose study programs in the A-listed accreditation campus in Indonesia with the proposed Master’s research proposal related to human health. Additionally, the winners of the Dexa Award Science Scholarship were also provided a career opportunity at Dexa Group.

Further, Wahyu also advises students who are currently studying in undergraduate programs to never give up on pursuing their dreams. If there is an opportunity for you to walk toward your dream, feel free to try—the courage to try shows that we have managed to set the first foothold to achieve the dream. “Being a successful person is not enough, be a successful person who can benefit others. Never give up on pursuing your dreams, if there is an opportunity, do not hesitate to try,” said Wahyu.
