New Colombo Plan

Internships and mentorships are hallmarks of the New Colombo Plan (NCP), a signature Australian Government initiative to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships and mentorships in the region.

The NCP Internship and Mentorship Network connects private-sector organisations looking for the best and brightest and NCP students seeking a rewarding and challenging workplace experience in the Indo-Pacific to complement their formal studies under the program.

As a registered NCP Internship and Mentorship Network member, private-sector organisations can access a diverse talent pool and support students in obtaining professional experience in the region, and universities and NCP students can access the internship and mentorship opportunities made available by registered organisations.

The network is open to registrations by those offering placement opportunities directly or with their members. Third party and commercial providers do not qualify to register. 

If your organisation would like to be involved, register your interest, or visit the New Colombo Plan website for more information on the program and the Internship and Mentorship Network.
