Pengalaman Beasiswa LPDP: Beberapa Catatan dan Tips

Assalaamu’alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh,

 

Alhamdulillah, saya adalah dua kali penerima beasiswa LPDP. Pertama kali saya dapat tahun 2013 untuk menempuh studi Master (S2) di University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom) di tahun itu juga, alhamdulillah saya termasuk di angkatan pertama yang diberangkatkan melalui beasiswa ini. Kedua kalinya adalah pada tahun 2016 saya menerima “beasiswa lanjutan” untuk menempuh studi Doktoral (S3) di International Islamic University of Malaysia, yang studinya dimulai Februari 2017 lalu dan sekarang masih saya tempuh.

Banyak pihak yang bertanya pada saya tentang proses serta tips and tricks untuk mendapatkan beasiswa LPDP. Saya pun menjelaskan sejauh yang saya ketahui (dan ingat), tapi kemudian ada yang menyebut “bermanfaat sekali ya yang membagi pengalaman dan tips beasiswa di blog mereka”. Saya sadari bahwa saya belum melakukannya. Maka semoga bisa saya lakukan dalam tulisan ini.

Pengalaman Ajaib Saat Umrah (2014)

 

Assalaamu’alaykum!

 

Pengalaman umrah pertama saya begitu indah, dan saya berdoa ini bukanlah pengalaman yang terakhir berkunjung ke Haramain. Jika anda menanyakan apa saja yang saya lakukan di sana, apa yang saya lihat, mudah sekali anda google dan anda akan menemukannya. Prosedur umrah tidak pernah berubah sejak dahulu, mungkin hanya khilaf dalam beberapa detail saja. Kemegahan arsitekturnya yang ada perubahan (saat saya ke sana masih dibangun) tapi itu pun dapat digoogle saja.

CIMC vs Faculty: President vs Chair

The Community of International Moot Court (CIMC) has finally been established. As of now, faculty support has been very great. At least from administrations, they have been been really enthusiastic by being willing to endorse our request for a university internet domain. From fundings, the faculty is showing positive signals as well –although details are yet to be revealed until next week.

However we had a few disagreements when it comes to the term we used. Our community used to be called IMA (International Mooting Association). But when the Vice Dean told us that all communities must have the word “Community” or “Komunitas” as uniform naming system, our Charter Preparatory Committee voted for CIMC as our name. That one was fine.

But the next one was the title “President” as our chief executive officer. The Vice Dean said that the use of word was improper and “menganjurkan” (recommended) us to change it to “Chair” or “Ketua”.

The faculty and the rectorate, according to her, seemed to not quite like the use of “President” for student organisations due to improperness. While some officials react apathetically (what is in the name? –quoting Shakespear), she says, othes disapprove with its use –including the use in our student board (also using the term “President” as the title for their head.).

At that time, I only mentioned that the term “President” has a different aura effect to its members which was why the drafters of our Charter chose that term. Not to mention, as an organisation simulating international courts, the ICC and ICJ also uses the term “President” to name their head. As we simulate international courts, we should be different from Indonesian courts using the term “ketua”.

Thus it is not as simple as people whom agree to the term saying “what is in the name” or in more popular language “meh, just a name”. It means something.

At the time, however, I could not refute the “improper use of language” yet. So I provided a vague response of “I will consult with the other members first”. But as like a good mooter, I went straight to research on the matter and this is what I found:

 

president, n. 1. The chief political executive ofa government;

the head of state. [Cases: United States C=:;26.]

2. The chief executive officer of a corporation or other

organization. 3. CHAIR (1). 4. CHAIR (3). See (in senses

3 & 4) presiding officer (3) under OFFICER (2). – presidential,

adj.

(Source: Garner, Bryan. A (ed.), 2009. Blacks Law Dictionary (9th ed.). St. Paul, MN: West, p1304 –emphasis added)

and also: 

pre·si·den /présidén/ n 1 kepala (lembaga, perusahaan, dsb)serah terima jabatan — Direktur Bank A akan dilakukan hari ini; 2 kepala negara (bagi negara yg berbentuk republik): pemilihan — Amerika Serikat dilakukan empat tahun sekali;

(Source: Departmen Pendidikan Nasional. 2008. Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia [Online]. { http://bahasa.kemdiknas.go.id/kbbi/} –emphasis added)

Thus I have found not only numerous practices of using the title “President” as head of organization, but also a well established Opinio Juris. This then constitutes as elements of Customary: be it from the definition of general theory of law (Sudikno Mertokusumo. 1991. Mengenal Hukum: Suatu Pengantar. Liberty: Yogyakarta pp106-107) or analogous to the definition of international law (Malcom Shaw. 2008. International Law (Sixth Edition). New York: Cambridge University Press, pp72-93).

Yet as also mentioned by Professor Sudikno Mertokusumo (in Op.Cit., Mertokusumo, p108) that imperative positive laws will prevail over that of the customary. Thus it is important to know whether the faculty’s statement was a recommendation or a Recommendation”.

I dont know why I bother to write such a long post for something this unimportant.

But wait!

I get it!

versus Pursuit of Happiness

In contrary,  there are some things which are seemingly small and minor. But they can, at times, diminish all happiness felt at that very second.

1. To show work result, but responded coldly

2. To text/email someone real long, to only get a one word reply.

3. To enthusiastically express feelings/interest on a certain subject, but responded coldly

4. To find out that a friend had betrayed me

5. To find out that a moral idol I look up to, had betrayed the value I admired her/him for

6. To be lied upon, for something crucial

7. To be underestimated

8. To hear someone call my favourite [anything] crap, when knowing I like it

9. To smile at another, but coldly responded

10. To be doubted of something I am fully committed on

11. To be disliked, frowned upon, ’embargo’ed, especially when I dont know why

12. To enthusiastically open a chat with someone, but not replied to

13. To come to an appointment, finding that the other person/s chose not to attend without telling me for no apparent reason, and that I was alone

14. To be the last person to leave a.k.a. the one left behind

15. To help someone faithfully, but repaid in pain/betrayal (not that I want something in return, but I would at least expect to not be treated with ill-manners)

16. To be cut in middle of my sentence, and be told that I am wrong before I have even made my point

17. To not be heard/ignored

18. To be given no rational choice

19. To find out mid way, that I am fighting for something that doesnt want me

20. To be in need but finding myself alone

21. To be accused of something bad which I didnt do

22. To care but not cared by

23. To find that my choices are between ‘bad-end’ and ‘worse-end’

24. To find out that I was appreciated only so that I can be used, and then disposed of

25. To be left, especially by someone sygnificant

26. To realize that I am not capable to do what I desire

27. To find out that I do not know what to do and where to go

This is the list so far. As of now, it seems that there are 2 times more reasons to be happy.

But well, yeah.
