The New Colombo Plan (NCP) is a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region.

The NCP involves a Scholarship Program and provides around 120 Scholarships annually to a diverse range of Australian undergraduates studying a range of disciplines in up to 40 Indo-Pacific locations. Scholars are encouraged to undertake study, language training and an internship and/or mentorship for up to 19 months.

Scope Global has provided post-selection support services to the NCP Scholarship Program since the Program’s pilot in 2014.

In delivering these services, we work in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australian and host universities, host organisations and other agencies to support rewarding experiences for scholars.
