IISMA (Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards) Co-Funding is part of the Kampus Merdeka Program of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemdikbudristek), using a partial funding scheme between the government and the student to allow greater opportunity for Indonesians to study for a semester at the best universities around the world. The Co-Funding scheme of the IISMA Program was initiated due to the significant increase in enthusiasm among the students, their home institutions, and the IISMA partner institutions abroad.

As part of Kampus Merdeka, initiated by Kemdikbudristek, undergraduate students from all Indonesian higher education institutions under DIKTI can study abroad.
