TAIPEI -- A government-funded agency is offering scholarships for up to 182 students from developing countries who are interested in studying in Taiwan.
Applications will be accepted through March 14, said Lee Pai-po, deputy secretary-general of the Taipei-based International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF), Tuesday.
“This year will be the first time programs taught both in English and Mandarin Chinese will be available for the students,” Lee said. “In the past, only English-taught programs were available.”
Around 20 places will be available for the Mandarin-taught programs, he said.
The Higher Education Scholarship Program offers scholarships to students from developing countries to study for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees at Taiwanese universities.
A total of 32 programs at 21 local universities in science and technology, agriculture, and humanities and social sciences are available for the students to choose from, Lee said.
