    VOA = Visa On Arrival? Voice of America? Very Odd Acronym?

    Just kidding; I assume you mean the middle choice. But it would be better to specify; most of us here will see VOA and automatically think of the first option.

      Yes, you have to take time to punch up the flyer to figure out what's going down. At least I did, anyway.

        To be fair the OP does state [COLOR=#0000cd]VOA Broadcasting Fellowship[/COLOR]. .... and his/her JPEG does ask which young Indonesian journalist will get the opportunity to work for Voice of America doesn't it?


        VOA Voice of America have been broadcasting on HF bands for decades.

            I am a very slow reader and tend to focus on familar words, such as "discussion" "VOA." Pardon my confusion. As Puspa noted VOA means "visa on arrival" around here, notwithstanding Google.

            ps The Voice of America is a cold war relic and US government propaganda mill. I hope it gets sequestered out of existance. Of course, after it co-opts at least one more impressionable Indonesian journalism student.

                Of course I do -- I'm old. I also do not associate it with the usual topics that come up often on this form. You know, visa questions and such.

                      VOA might be a propaganda mill, but would you like to relegate the task of shaping America's image to Hollywood alone?

                          I do Apologize because I didn't wrote what's VOA stand for. It's Voice of America.
                          It's one of program from PPIA and VOA for Journalist Program for 6 to 12 months in US.

                          but actually, I already upload the flyer, so I thought it's been very clear.

                            I'm sure it varies from system to system, but the graphic of the poster doesn't appear in my browser in the OP - all I get is a link to a jpg that would have to be separately clicked on. So not everybody sees the explanatory picture simply by entering the thread.

                              The flyer is not posted in the OP, just the link, as Puspa points out. I actually took the time to give it a face, so that those who passed it by as not interested in Visas might have a second look.

                              If you have any other misguided quibbles, just let me know.
