The New Colombo Plan Mobility Program provides mobility grants for annual University project submissions that support undergraduate students to undertake semester-long or short-term mobility programs. This includes short-term study, practicums, clinical placements, internships/mentorships and short-term research.
The mobility study undertaken overseas needs to be a mandatory course requirement or study you can credit towards your degree.
Funding is currently available for 2015 projects and results of 2016 projects will soon be announced.
If you are successful, you could receive up to $4000 to put towards the cost of your program, travel and incidental costs. Please note that places are limited and your faculty will make the final decision regarding your eligibility to participate.
