Welcome to the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation

For higher education in Indonesia

The Heliconia Scholarship Foundation provides Heliconia Scholarships to youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds in Jakarta, so that they can study at an Indonesian university. We support talented and ambitious young adults from shelters, who do otherwise not have the opportunity to study.

The foundation is named after the colourful heliconia flower, which is common in Asia and also called ‘stairway to heaven’, due to its typical shape. This makes it a beautiful symbol for our mission:

‘Offering youngsters the opportunity to take a step up the social ladder’.
