KSE Alumni Association
Karya Salemba Empat (KSE) Alumni Association are scholarship recipients of the Karya Salemba Empat Foundation who have graduated and completed their studies at universities/institutes. The increasing number of KSE Alumni who graduate every year is a separate concern for the need for a place to continue to establish friendship with fellow KSE Alumni. So several KSE Alumni with the encouragement of the Karya Salemba Empat Foundation Management jointly established the Karya Salemba Empat Alumni Association organization.
Perhaps it is because of the background of the KSE scholarship recipients and perhaps it is also because of the family spirit and breath of the KSE that recipients, even after they no longer receive the scholarship because they have graduated or are now working and married, continue to include the KSE in their lives.
The strong emotional bond with KSE is the foundation for the scholarship alumni to form their own community called "Paguyuban Alumni KSE".The Paguyuban, which was established on 30 April 2011 at Jalan Mendawai I No 19 South Jakarta 13120 (the old office of the Karya Salemba Empat Foundation) by several KSE alumni founders, is an independent organization based on the spirit of Sharing, Networking and Developing which aims to become a partner of the KSE Foundation in supporting the achievement of the KSE Foundation's goals in educating the nation.
In general, the vision, mission and activities of the KSE Alumni Association are as follows:
