2021 New Colombo Plan Mobility Program Consortium Application: Member University Consultation
The guidelines for the 2021 round of the New Colombo Plan (NCP) Mobility Program were released on Friday 15 February. 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. Applications for the 2021 funding round open on 16 March and close on 14 May 2020.
Since the 2014 NCP Mobility Program pilot round, ACICIS has successfully secured a total of more than $11 million of NCP mobility grant funding on behalf of the consortium’s Australian member universities and their students.
New Colombo Plan funding has allowed ACICIS to significantly expand the range of in-country study options available to Australian students in Indonesia, with the addition – since 2015 – of six new study options offered in disciplines including business, agriculture, creative arts, public health, law and Indonesian language. A further two study options in sustainable tourism and agriculture were launched in 2019.
This year ACICIS will consult with the consortium’s membership as outlined below, in order to formulate the consortium’s 2021 NCP Mobility Program application.
