In 2020, Universitas Indonesia (UI) made a commitment confirming continuation of study for every student regardless of their financial condition during the pandemic era. In synchronization with the agenda of the government of the Republic of Indonesia, UI also guarantees that their admission process provides equal opportunity for higher education, particularly to low-economy students, namely those coming from family with 20% lower income than family income group.  

Implementing this, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia prompts extra attention to candidates from the Frontier, Outermost, and Disadvantaged (3T) Regions (daerah terdepan, terluar, dan tertinggal (3T)) in form of 3T Higher Education Affirmation Program (Pendidikan Tinggi (ADik)), and to recipients of Smart Indonesia Card coming from low-income family.

As for another example, they prepare Plenary Scholarship for the Nation (Beasiswa Paripurna untuk Bangsa (BPuB) to expand access for students of Faculty of Medicine of UI with high academic potential coming from low-income family.

Furthermore, in December 2020, Beasiswa Pelangi Akademos Program opened registration and selection to distribute grant gathered from the alumni of Faculty of Psychology of UI to the students of Faculty of Psychology of UI.
