Akhir 2009, aku sempat melamar beasiswa hehehe, IFP. Lalu aku minta surat rekomendasi kepada dua orang yang “kenal aku”. Ibu Kalsum adalah dosen sekaligus pembimbing kedua tesis aku, dan Pak Agus adalah kakak tingkat aku saat S2 kemudian jadi sekelas/seangkatan saat S3 tiga tahun kemudian. Membaca lagi dua komentar orang-orang ini membuatku menjadi terus bersemangat. Foto di Gunung Manglayang, pada 10 April 2009.

- A Researcher of Ancient Manuscripts in Cirebon. Sinta Ridwan is a fellow of this fellowship, many reasons for her to get this fellowship, they are: a research and knowledge development of ancient manuscripts, especially in Cirebon manuscripts are only a few students who concern about it. Limited in operational funding of getting research suggestion. Fellowship is an appreciation of fellow’s efforts for dedicating of herself in knowledge.
In researching Cirebon’s ancient manuscripts need talented people. Besides knowing many theories, also need to know letters, language, and its cultures. Without that characters, a philologist or researcher will be difficulties to get the best result.
A fellow is a Cirebonese girl who concerns and cares about the condition of Cirebon manuscripts. The attention from local government is not making down of fellow’s spirit to always run in philology and ancient manuscripts. For your information, the fellow’s background education was from English Literature degree, it has good and bad influences. For a good influence is, she can inform her result of research in using English language to many people especially for foreign people. And for bad influence is, she must learn very hard to know local letters, language, and Cirebon’s culture. Although, we have to optimist that she is a diligent student, study hard, and has a commitment to get her purpose in analyzing Cirebon’s manuscripts that have its difficulties and characters. We hope this fellow can be a philologist of Cirebon’s manuscripts in order to open and analyze the knowledge of culture, politic, history, economic, all of subjects in the past time.
