She said the Dream participants will also be invited to learn in the field by short internships to several institutions and organizations in Yogyakarta like SD Mangunan, SD Tumbuh, Mualimin Islamic Schools, Yakkum, Sukunan Bersemi Community, Cemara Community, and Kampung Halaman Foundation.

The participants will also be given the opportunity to get closer to local communities by following National Student Service Scheme (KKN) in Wukirsari village, Imogiri, Bantul, and Yogyakarta Special Region (DIY).

"To get closer to culture and tourism in Yogyakarta, the participants will also be invited to visit tourism objects and a cultural workshop like making "bakpia" (kind of cake) and batik," she said.

She added the Dream program is followed by students, both local and international strata one (S1) students. Registration for the program will be closed on April 15, 2012, and the conditions for Dream 2012 participants can be seen at dream.ugm.ac.id or http://oia.ugm.ac.id/dream.
