Strategic Contributions to Indonesia (SCI) is the annual program of the Indonesian Student Association in Greater Leeds (PPI Greater Leeds), where in 2021, the event collaborated with the Indonesian Scholars International Convention (ISIC) held by PPI UK. SCI is an academic essay competition that also presents panellists and speakers from the government, academicians, and practitioners to talk about the theme of the event. This program aims to provide a forum for Indonesian students everywhere to channel their ideas and interests through an essay. This activity can be an opportunity for Indonesian students to expand their network and gain new knowledge related to the theme.
