The Ministry of Education (MOE), Republic of China (Taiwan), established the Taiwan Scholarship Program to encourage outstanding international students (excluding students from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau SAR) to undertake degree studies in Taiwan so as to familiarize themselves with the academic environment in Taiwan and promote communication, understanding and friendship between Taiwan and countries around the world.

The Taiwan Scholarship Program awards outstanding international students undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Taiwan by awarding each recipient as follows: tuition and payment of academic fees, including credit fees, and subsistence allowance.

The maximum period of each scholarship is four years for undergraduate programs, two years for master’s programs, and four years for doctorate programs. The maximum length of the total awards for each recipient undertaking a combination of studies is five years.

Annual award periods begin on September 1 and continue until August 31 of the following year. Recipients must arrive in Taiwan and enroll at their admitting universities/colleges during the scheduled registration time unless delays have been approved by the relevant institutions and the MOE. If recipients fail to arrive in Taiwan for registration, their award shall be revoked with no deferrals.
