Griffith has been successful in the recent New Colombo Plan mobility round and, along with The University of Queensland, awarded more than $240,000 to run two projects in the Pacific Islands.

Adjunct Associate Professor Sven Schottmann, from Griffith’s School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science, said the projects will give around 50 students from both institutions the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the region they share.

Students will be given between three and nine thousand dollars in New Colombo Plan funding to participate in these mobilities, and Griffith students will receive 10 or 20 credit points towards completion of their degree.
