Brief Information

The Ministry of Education (MOE) Taiwan Scholarship Program provides tuition and miscellaneous expenses of up to NTD 40,000 each semester and a monthly living allowance of NTD 15,000 or NTD 20,000.  A Taiwan Scholarship may be held for 4 years for undergraduate programs, 2 years for master’s degree programs, and 4 years for doctorate programs. Scholarship applications must be submitted to a Republic of China (ROC) overseas mission and applicants must apply separately to a university or college in Taiwan for admission.

The MOE Taiwan Scholarship Program provides the following for
    each outstanding international student scholarship recipient
    who comes to Taiwan to undertake a bachelor’s degree,
    master’s degree, or doctorate:

    (i) Tuition and miscellaneous expenses (i.e. the course-credit
        fees, and miscellaneous basic study-related fees): The
        MOE will pay up to NTD 40,000 each semester for each
        recipient’s approved tuition and miscellaneous expenses.
        If these exceed a total amount of NTD40,000, the remaining
        amount must be paid to the university/college by the
        student. The “miscellaneous expenses” do not include
        any of the following: administration fees, thesis
        supervision fees, insurance premiums, accommodation, or
        internet access. These are all the responsibility of the
        scholarship recipient.

         undertaking university undergraduate studies a monthly
