New Colombo Plan

The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government, lifting knowledge of the Indo-Pacific by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region.

The NCP Internship and Mentorship Network connects private-sector organisations looking for the best and brightest with NCP Scholars seeking a rewarding and challenging workplace experience in the Indo-Pacific.

Registering as a Network member will give your organisation access to a diverse talent pool, and help support students in obtaining professional experience in the region. For information on other ways your organisation can get involved please go to the NCP website.

In addition to registered organisations, only NCP Scholars and Australian universities have access to the Network listings. If you are a NCP Mobility Student interested in opportunities for internships under a semester grant, please contact your university’s NCP contact point for information on possible internship hosts.
