The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government that aims to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region.
Scope Global manages the New Colombo Plan Scholarship Program, which provides opportunities for Australian undergraduate students to undertake semester-based study and internships or mentorships in participating Indo-Pacific locations. We provide support to scholars before and during their semester-based study, internships or mentorships.
This year, we managed 219 new and existing scholars across 18 countries spanning from Sri Lanka and India to South Korea, Japan and Fiji.
Scholars consistently rated Scope Global’s support services highly: 88% rated the overall quality of support services provided by their Scope Global case manager as ‘good’ or ‘excellent’, and 92% were completely or very satisfied with the pre-departure assistance they received.
