this GSU program has been developed.

have taken course-work specifically designed to the needs of the Indonesian participants;
have conduct, disseminated and publicized applied research; and have learned techniques
and appropriate technology in the academic and outreach components of the program.
The Georgia State University’s Fiscal Policy program runs for 18 months, starting July 1,
2011. Selection criteria includes: 1) a minimum score of 550 on the paper based
TOEFL* (79 on the internet based test); 2) a minimum of 1016 in GRE* scores; 3)
appropriate academic training in Economics or other relevant fields, with preference for
