The Australian government is planning to boost its number of students studying in Indonesia with its prestigious New Colombo Plan scholarship.
Australia planned to send 14 of its most talented citizens to live, study and intern in Indonesia in 2017 through the program, the Australian Embassy in Jakarta said in a press release recently.
The students will study a broad range of disciplines, including engineering, law and marine biology at top institutions such as the University of Indonesia and Gadjah Mada University.
The scholars will join the more than 1,100 New Colombo Plan mobility grant recipients targeting Indonesia in 2017, taking the total number of students who travel to Australia’s northern neighbor supported by the program in its first four years to more than 3,100.
