The 2020 New Colombo Plan Scholars have been announced with 125 scholarships awarded to students to study in the Indo-Pacific region.

We are delighted to announce that the following 2020 New Colombo Plan Scholars will undertake study in Indonesia through – and with the assistance of – the Australian Consortium for ‘In-Country’ Indonesian Studies (ACICIS). Through their study in Indonesia, these students are set to gain a deeper understanding of of Australia’s near northern neighbour, while developing their Indonesian language and cross-cultural communication skills. We look forward to seeing the contribution made by these 2020 NCP Scholars to the strengthening of the Australia-Indonesia relationship into the future.
