    Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (Taiwan ICDF) is offering a Higher Education Scholarship Program for international students to study for undergraduate (4 years), master’s (2 years), and doctoral (4 years) degrees at prestigious partner universities in Taiwan until 2022. The TaiwanICDF has created the Taiwan International Cooperation Alliance (TICA) with 22 partner universities, establishing an administrative platform to manage and enhance the scholarship program under the TICA framework. TaiwanICDF Scholarship applications will be accepted for 34 programs in 2022.

    Eligibility Criteria

    Applicants for a TaiwanICDF scholarship must meet both the basic eligibility requirements and be citizens of one of the countries listed on the TaiwanICDF Scholarship List. Applicants must also comply with the ROC (Taiwan) National Immigration Agency’s Regulations Governing Visiting, Resident, and Permanent Residency of Aliens.

    Note: All Undergraduate Programs accept only applications from citizens of ROC affiliated nations (Taiwan).

    Application Procedure

    The annual application period runs from January 1 through March 15. The application period for the 2022 Scholarship program runs from January 1 to March 15, 2022.
    Applicants should submit the following documents to their country’s ROC (Taiwan) embassy, consulate general or representative office. Applicants must ensure that their documentation is exact and comprehensive; if not, their application will be rejected.

    • A photocopy of the applicant’s passport or other evidence of nationality document.

    • Applicants must submit a photocopy of their highest-level diploma as well as academic transcripts.

    • Two letters of recommendation

    • A photocopy of the applicant’s certificate of English proficiency. Please keep in mind that it could be a TOEFL score or a score from another accepted English proficiency exam, or documents proving that the candidate completed a program in which all subjects were taught in English. Applicants who are unable to produce such proof of English proficiency owing to a particular circumstance may have their English proficiency examined by a ROC (Taiwan) representative office through an interview or other types of assessment. These documents are not required for applicants whose official national language is English.

    • Any other documents specifically requested by an ROC (Taiwan) Embassy

    The ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office will undertake a preliminary review of candidates based on the TaiwanICDF’s eligibility standards and selection criteria, and then submit a list of recommended applicants to the TaiwanICDF by March 31 of each year.
    An academic committee created by each partner university in collaboration with TaiwanICDF representatives will conduct a second review of selected applicants. Such evaluations will be based on the selection standards of each university, as well as the TaiwanICDF’s eligibility and selection criteria.

    The TaiwanICDF will, in effect, disclose its list of scholarship beneficiaries no later than June 10 each year once the second review has been completed in collaboration with all partner universities. The ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office to which the successful applicants applied will send them an acceptance letter.
