Educational Fund Management Institution, or commonly abbreviated as LPDP, is an institution operating under the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Education and Culture, and Ministry of Religious Affairs which is committed to preparing future leaders and professionals and encouraging innovation for the realization of a prosperous, democratic, and just Indonesia. The main program of LPDP is the provision of scholarships for Indonesian Citizens (WNI) who wish to continue their education at home and abroad. The scholarship program funds come from the National Education Development Fund (DPPN) which is managed by an endowment fund management mechanism. DPPN itself is a manifestation of the mandate of the 1945 Constitution that at least twenty per cent of the State Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBN) is for the education function.

In addition to providing educational scholarships, LPDP also has a Productive Innovative Research (RISPRO) funding program that is intended to fund research, both competitive and initiative, to improve the competitiveness of the nation through product/technology commercialization, implementation of policies/governance, or publications. RISPRO funding has a research funding program related to culture and creative economy, themed "Development of Tourism and Creative Economy" and "Social Sciences and Humanities - Arts and Culture - Education".
