Study in Indonesia in 2018/2019
New Colombo Plan Mobility Grant opportunities
New Colombo Plan mobility grants, ranging from $3000.00 - $7000.00, are available to undergraduate students wishing to study in Indonesia via the Australian Consortium for 'In-Country' Indonesian Studies program.
ACICIS Program Offerings
The Australian Consortium for 'In-Country' Indonesian Studies (ACICIS) is a non-profit consortium of universities that develops and coordinates high quality, in-country study options in Indonesia.
Although Monash offers exchange programs through several partners in Indonesia, access to studies in English at these locations can be limited. ACICIS is our preferred option for students who are unable to access a suitable program through our exchange arrangements. When approved to participate on an ACICIS program, you will be enrolled in as Study Abroad, meaning that you pay tuition directly to ACICIS.
New Colombo Plan (NCP) mobility grant applicants must be undergraduate (Bachelor Pass or Honours degree) students, Australian Citizens and between 18 and 28 years of age. However, up to 30 percent of the total grant recipients for any given program (Australia-wide) may be over the age of 28. Therefore, students who do not meet this age criteria are still strongly encouraged to apply. Grant recipients must be undertaking the ACICIS program for academic credit towards their Monash University degree.
