Outline

The New Colombo Mobility Program provides funding to Australian universities and consortia to support Australian undergraduate students to participate in semester-based or short-term study, internships, mentorships, practicums and research in 40 host locations across the Indo-Pacific region.

Types of Grants

Short-term Grant

Short-term grants enable students to participate in Mobility Projects that:

  • are a minimum of two weeks (14 days) in duration, and
  • provide credit/count towards the course requirements for the Australian course of study in which the student is enrolled
  • A short-term grant provides between $1,000 and $3,000 per student.

Semester Grant

Semester grants enable students to participate in Mobility Projects that:

  • entail full-time study overseas for a semester as defined by the host institution, and
  • provide credit/count towards the course requirements for the Australian course of study in which the student is enrolled
  • A semester grant provides between $3,000 and $7,000 per student.

Internship Grant

Internship Grants are available for semester-based mobility projects that include an internship component in addition to semester study. Additional course credit can be applied at the discretion of the home university but is not required.

An Internship Grant will provide $1,000 per student (which is in addition to a semester grant).

Students receiving a short-term grant are ineligible for internship grants. Where an internship is the sole component of a semester mobility project, the mobility project is ineligible for an internship grant.

A student participating in a Mobility Project must:

  • be an Australian citizen. Students cannot receive a Student Grant to undertake a Mobility Project in a host location in which they have dual citizenship or residency rights;
  • be enrolled in an on-shore campus of an Australian University throughout the duration of the Mobility Project;
  • be undertaking a Bachelor Degree (Level 7) or Bachelor Honours Degree (Level 8), as defined by the Australian Qualifications Framework at the commencement of their Mobility Project;
  • be between 18 and 28 years of age at the commencement of their Mobility Project;
  • not have already commenced a period of overseas study in the same host location as the Mobility Project;and
  • not receive more that one short-term and one semester grant (with or without an internship) during their Australian course of study
