2025 New Colombo Plan Scholarship Applications Now Open

New Colombo Plan 10th Anniversary

Study Overseas is delighted to announce that student nominations are now open for the 2025 New Colombo Plan Scholarship.

What is the New Colombo Plan Scholarship?

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) is a signature initiative of the Australian Government that aims to lift knowledge in Australia of the Indo-Pacific by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region. This year the Australian Government is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the New Colombo Plan Scholarship.

The New Colombo Plan Scholarship is highly prestigious, and one of the highest-value international study scholarships available to Australian students.

It provides students significant funding (usually up to 87,000 AUD) for a period of study, language training, internship and/or mentorship of up to 19 months in the Indo-Pacific region.

The University of Adelaide can nominate up to 15 students for the New Colombo Plan Scholarship.
