Mosaic Taiwan is a fellowship exchange program for emerging US leaders ages 20-35. The essence of this program is to connect US future leaders with their counterparts, cultivate lasting relationships and enhance the comprehensive understanding of Taiwan.

This program runs from June 15 to July 5, 2014. Fellows will take part in team-building and leadership development exercises, as well as workshops and lectures on topics involving Taiwan. There will also be visits to businesses and museums in various cities, as well as indigenous reserves and sites of outstanding natural beauty around the island. The program is made even more immersive through home stays and community service activities. Fellows will also get to meet government officials and young leaders in Taiwan to discuss issues of common concern, with a focus on fostering cross-cultural connections and friendships. Round-trip tickets, food, and lodging are all covered.
The program is only open to US citizens aged 20-35. The numbers of the participants are limited and the review process will be intensive.
