Scope Global has successfully tendered for a three year contract to manage support services for the scholarship stream of the New Colombo Plan Program. This is a significant win for Scope Global and South Australia, considering the high-profile of the program.
The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake internships in the region.
Scope Global’s Executive Manager for International Scholarships and Development, Andrew Brown, is delighted with the recent contract win.
“Our success shows that Scope Global has established itself as a leading organisation within the competitive fields of international education and development. Scope Global has been managing the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships program and the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program successfully for more than eight years and we are looking forward to drawing on this experience to deliver high quality post-selection support services for New Colombo Plan scholars.”
In delivering support services for the New Colombo Plan Scholarship Program, Scope Global works in partnership with the Department of Education and Training and the Department and Foreign Affair and Trade’s New Colombo Plan Secretariat; and in cooperation with Home and Host Institutions and other agencies to support a personally and professionally rewarding experience for the scholars. Services provided include pre-departure advice and guidance, ongoing support while in country, and assistance with return to Australia.
