Apr 09, 2018 | New Colombo Plan

The New Colombo Plan 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. It is intended to be transformational, deepening Australia’s relationships in the region, both at the individual level and through expanding university, business and other stakeholder links.

Three Deakin students were awarded scholarships in 2017, followed by nine Deakin scholars in 2018. Find out more about our 2018 NCP Scholars below as we prepare to follow their journey over the next 12 months.
