Over time, the growing cohort of New Colombo Plan (NCP) Alumni will play an increasingly important role in Australia's relationships with our neighbours to become an influential and diverse network of Australians with direct experience in the Indo-Pacific, strong professional and personal networks across our region, and a driving force in Australia's future prosperity.
The NCP Alumni Program is open to all NCP scholarship and mobility students on completion of their award and offers members a range of benefits including access to exclusive networking events, professional development and mentoring opportunities and membership of a growing online community of future leaders with a shared passion for, and experience in, the Indo-Pacific.
The program offers unique opportunities for business to connect to some of Australia's most talented youth with first-hand experience living, studying and working in the Indo-Pacific, and established professional and personal networks in the region.
