The application call for the TaiwanICDF International Higher Education Scholarship is now open. The Taiwan Government scholarship aims to help partner countries achieve sustainable development. This is done by training their workforce which is essential to develop a country. The TaiwanICDF scholarship is available for research or studies at Undergraduate, graduate and PhD levels within partner universities in Taiwan.

If you discover any mistakes or typos in your printed form, you can apply again (please remember to type carefully). However, you will need to bring your final, corrected forms to the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office for their first review. Please be aware that your printed forms must be identical to the information you saved in the online system, since the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office may refer to both versions during their first review.

Selected applicants for this government scholarship will receive an acceptance letter through the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office to whom they originally applied to. Consequently, gaining admission from the university you applied to does not necessarily mean that you have also been given a TaiwanICDF scholarship. The Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) has formed the Taiwan International Cooperation Alliance (TICA) with 23 partner universities. TICA serves as an operational platform for managing and improving the scholarship program offered by TaiwanICDF.
