NCP Eligibility Requirements:

Students must first apply to the Digital Student Fellowship Program to be accepted onto the program.  All students are then automatically considered for an NCP scholarship.  To be eligible for a scholarship students must be:

·         Domestic Student (for NCP purposes). International students and those students who are otherwise ineligible for an NCP grant are welcome to apply to participate in the Digital Student Fellowship Program at your own expense.

·         Enrolled in an ANU undergraduate program in at least their 2nd year of study.

·         Able to incorporate the Digital Student Fellowship Program for course credit (e.g. as ENGN3013 or ENGN4221 or another approved course). Important Note: Standard ANU Tuition fees for credit-bearing courses will apply and are not covered by the NCP grant. 

·         Be in good academic standing with ANU and CECS.

·        Some restrictions may apply to students who have accepted an NCP grant previously (eligibility will be confirmed by the ANU Global Programs Team). Students who receive a "virtual" NCP scholarship and still be eligible for a subsequent international short-term NCP scholarship at a later stage.
