INPEX Intern and New Colombo Plan Scholar gaining international experience

INPEX is supporting an intern through the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan (NCP) program.

The NCP is an Australian Government scholarship program for Australian university students to work and study in the Indo-Pacific region. The program helps high-performing students of various disciplines to develop in-country experience and insights, professional networks and an enthusiasm for engagement within the region.

Grace Manahan is a legal and government-international relations student at Griffith University in Queensland and is in the final week of a five-week internship at Tokyo office.

Grace was recently awarded a NCP scholarship and will commence her studies in Singapore next year. Ahead of this, our Tokyo office has engaged her as an intern through a separate NCP initiative called the Global Mobility Program, which is run through Australian universities for eligible undergraduate students as well as NCP scholars.

Grace said she was thoroughly enjoying her time with INPEX and described the work environment as dynamic, challenging and satisfying.

“This internship has allowed me to develop a greater understanding of the complex multi-state collaboration required within the oil and gas industry. I’m grateful and honoured to be the first NCP intern at INPEX and wish to thank the company for this invaluable opportunity. I hope to continue my relationship with INPEX in the future, whether it be during my studies or throughout my future career.”

This latest initiative is just one of the many ways in which INPEX supports the development and capabilities of young people.
