The Indonesian Science Fund (Dana Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia, DIPI) provides independent scientific research funding for investigators who show evidence of strong and exemplary scientific merit and potential.


We aim to elevate the overall quality of Indonesian research to produce cutting edge science to build Indonesia’s global competitiveness through sustainable financial infrastructure. DIPI grants are autonomous from the state budgeting cycle and state financial administration system. Applications for research funding are reviewed by panels of independent experts.

The establishment of the Indonesian Science Fund is regulated in Presidential Decree no. 9 2016 article 28, paragraph 2 part A. Concerning the ratification of AIPI's articles of association, based on the formation of AIPI under Law No. 8 of 1990.


DIPI is an independent body under the auspices of the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI). DIPI provides sustainable research funding to promote scientific culture of excellence.


DIPI, on competitive basis, would directly supply scientists with funds for world-class research. DIPI supports the career advancement of Indonesian scientists and providing high-quality national research facilities.


DIPI grants are eligible for researchers who are actively engaged in the proposed research investigation. Applicants with multidiciplinary proposal are encouraged to apply.
