new Colombo plan (NCP)

The New Colombo Plan is an initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo Pacific in Australia, supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region.

Team Australia was awarded NCP funding through the ANU to support eligible undergraduate students to compete in Tokyo in 2016-2018 and in 2019-202. Eligible students receive a $3000 stipend, to offset the cost of return economy airfares to Tokyo, accommodation, meals, and ground transport.
