Announcement of Taipei City’s Chinese-Learning Scholarships

The deadline is extended to 15th of June.

The 2018 Taipei City Chinese Language Study Scholarships, as part of the Program for Enhancing International Exchange, is granted to encourage city-to-city exchange and to inspire more people who are interested in Chinese culture to come and study Chinese in Taipei.

A total of ten scholarships will be awarded to ten different recipients selected among applicants from Taipei’s sister cities, partner cities and friendly cities over the world. Each award comprises a monthly allowance of NT$25,000 for six consecutive months, from September 2018 to February 2019. The scholarship is designed to help awardees pay for their tuition, health insurance, accommodation and other day-to-day expenses. Applicants should follow the guidelines in the attached announcement. In particular, guideline 11 requires recipients to participate in cultural exchange activities arranged by the Taipei City government and associated sponsors.

A selection committee will be set up by Taipei to choose scholarship recipients. Prospective candidates should submit a completed application along with the letter of recommendation to the Taipei City Department of Education by 31 May 2018. If we can be of service in any way, please contact the program coordinator, Miss Jhih Ying Jiang, by e-mail at edu_rd.25@mail.taipei.gov.tw or by fax at +886-2-2720-5660.
