We are delighted to announce our appointment by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to deliver the Managed Administrative and Support Services for the New Colombo Plan (NCP). The appointment continues our longstanding engagement with the NCP having managed the NCP Scholarship Program since the Pilot in 2014.
Newly appointed NCP Administration and Support Services Director Andrew Brown commented:
“We are so proud to continue our engagement with the NCP, a signature initiative of the Australian Government. Our approach to tender was informed by our specific program experience, our broader expertise in managing a variety of Australian Government funded international scholarships and mobility programs, and our valued partnerships with PwC and Earlybird Events. We can’t wait to start!”
A signature initiative of the Australian Government, the New Colombo Plan aims to lift the knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake work-based experiences in the region. Open to all Australian undergraduates across Australia, the New Colombo Plan represents the diversity of the Australian community.
