Selection Criteria

The candidates will be selected based on the fulfillment of the eligibility criteria. TECC in India will select the successful candidates and place some candidates on a waiting list.

Scholarship recipients must maintain a minimum average CGPA of 6.5 throughout their program. For institutions with different grading systems, the TECC in India will convert grades using established conversion methods or consider alternative indicators of academic excellence, such as university rankings (e.g., NIRF), to select outstanding students.

After a paper review of eligibility and supporting documents, interviews will be conducted in person or by video conferencing to interact with applicants and assess their suitability, including demeanor and moral character.


Note:- Applicants with a Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) certificate or a recommendation from their Taiwanese Mandarin teacher will be given preference. For programs taught entirely in English, submit TOEFL/IELTS scores or a government-recognised English language proficiency test certificate at the intermediate level (or a score of at least 75%).
