2021 New Colombo Plan Mobility Round
Show close time for other time zones
The New Colombo Plan (NCP), launched in 2014, aims to lift knowledge in Australia of the Indo-Pacific by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region. The NCP has two programs: scholarships (for study up to 19 months) and mobility grants (for short and longer-term study). Both programs prioritise internships, mentorships and language training.
The Strategic Objective of the NCP is to strengthen Australia’s regional standing by building a diverse cohort of Australian alumni with deeper Indo-Pacific knowledge, capability and connections.
The intended outcomes of the NCP are:
- increase the number and diversity of Australian university undergraduates with Indo-Pacific capability
- deepen people-to-people and institutional relationships between Australia and the Indo-Pacific region, and
- students and alumni connected with leaders in government, business and civil society in the Indo-Pacific.
Mobility Projects must include at least one of the following components:
in-country language study;
Internships (including clinical placements, practicums or artist residencies); or
Successful Applicants (Funding Recipients) will be awarded funding to be used for Semester or short-term Mobility Projects in Host Locations.
Applications for funding will be accepted from all Australian Universities (defined as a registered higher education provider under the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (Cth) in a provider category that permits the use of the word “university”) and consortia of Australian Universities.
The application round opens on 16 March 2020. Applications must be lodged in ISEO (International Student Exchange Online) by 11.30pm AEST on 25 June 2020.
