Published: 5 December 2019

The New Colombo Plan Scholarships have recently been announced and four of our students have been successful in receiving this prestigious and highly competitive Scholarship. This includes two students who have also been made Fellows. 

Fellows are the top-ranked applicant for each host location and are encouraged to play a strong leadership role in promoting the New Colombo Plan (NCP) while on their Scholarship Program, and also as part of the alumni network following completion of their Scholarship Program.

The New Colombo Plan scholarships are separate to the NCP grants with only around 120 prestigious and highly-competitive scholarships available.  Scholars are encouraged to undertake longer term study, language study and an internship and/or mentorship.

UNSW congratulates Zelia Chu, Vishal Karnamadakala, Aditya Ganguly and Alice Hu. 

The event to celebrate the awarding of the 2020 New Colombo Plan Scholarships was held on Monday 25th November 2019 at the Great Hall Parliament House.
