You may also be eligible to apply for a Mobility Grant to assist with participating in the program. 2018 ACSF will also be funded by The New Colombo Plan Scholarship Program of Australian Government. Eligible students will be able to get $2000 grant from the New Colombo Plan on top of the Hanban Scholarship.
