New Colombo Plan (NCP)

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) is an initiative introduced in 2015 by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFaT) which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian students to participate in: semester-based or short-term study, internships, mentorships, practicums and research.

Since 2015, Curtin has been awarded with a number of these grants and had the opportunity to send our students our across Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Indonesia.
