Description

Applications Open for 2016 TaiwanICDF’s International Higher Education Scholarship Program

The TaiwanICDF is scheduled for accepting applications of its International Higher Education Scholarship Program starting from January 1 to March 18, 2016, which is expecting to provide scholarships for 195 students. The program offers 30 academic programs at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in cooperation with 20 Taiwanese universities, covering a wide range of professional subjects, such as science and engineering, agriculture, public health and medicine, business administration, and humanities and social sciences. Open to students from a range of partner countries, applicants must initially apply for the program via their local Taiwanese embassies, or be recommended through the TaiwanICDF’s technical missions, overseas offices or projects.

Since it initiated in 1998, the International Higher Education Scholarship Program has benefitted 1,536 foreign students, and 525 students from 38 countries are currently studying in Taiwan, as of the end of 2015. The TaiwanICDF is committed to providing assistance to allies or friendly states through the program to cultivate advanced talents in the fields of policymaking, technology, and management. And by studying together with foreign students, Taiwanese students can expand their international perspective. The program can therefore fulfill the dual goals of assisting in the socio-economic development of partner countries and facilitating the internationalization of the universities in Taiwan.

Eligibility

An applicant must:

  1. Be a citizen of a country on the List of Countries Eligible for TaiwanICDF Scholarship, and satisfy any specific criteria established by his or her country and/or government of citizenship.
  2. Neither be a national of the Republic of China (Taiwan) nor an overseas compatriot student.
  3. Satisfy the admission requirements of the partner university to which he or she has applied to study under a TaiwanICDF scholarship.
  4. Be able to satisfy all requirements for a Resident Visa (Code: FS) set by the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and an Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) set by the Ministry of the Interior, of the ROC (Taiwan) government (this means that the TaiwanICDF has the right to revoke a scholarship offered if an applicant cannot satisfy the visa requirements).
  5. Upon accepting a TaiwanICDF scholarship, not hold any other ROC (Taiwan) government-sponsored scholarship (such as the Taiwan Scholarship) in the same academic year in which the TaiwanICDF scholarship would be due to commence.
  6. Not be applying for a further TaiwanICDF scholarship in unbroken succession — applicants who have already held a TaiwanICDF scholarship, MOFA’s Taiwan Scholarship or an MOE scholarship must have returned to their home country for more than one year before re-applying (note: to apply for a 2016 scholarship, an applicant must have graduated and returned to his or her home country before July 31, 2015).
  7. Have never had any scholarship revoked by any ROC (Taiwan) government agency or related institution, nor been expelled from any Taiwanese university.
