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.
