Support Services Organisation

Scope Global has been contracted by the Australian Government to manage support services for New Colombo Plan scholarship recipients, including working with scholarship recipients, home universities and host organisations to assist with implementation of study programs and other arrangements in study locations.

It is the responsibility of students to arrange work placements under their New Colombo Plan experience, however, Scope Global can assist with advice and support where practical to achieve the best work placement outcome for students.

Scope Global can access the internship and mentorship opportunities that business and other organisations make available via the website.

Scope Global can use this information to advise NCP Scholarship Holders on opportunities that have been identified and liaise with host organisations to arrange introductions between the organisations and the scholar, as considered appropriate.
