Taiwan Fellowship Accepting Applications through June 30, 2014
Similar to the Fulbright Scholarship, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the Republic of China created the Taiwan Fellowship to promote scholarship in the social sciences and humanities on topics related to Taiwan, cross-Strait relations, mainland China, the Asian-Pacific, and Sinology.
Qualifying applicants are professors, associated/assistant professors, post-doctoral researchers, doctoral candidates, doctoral program students at related departments of overseas universities, or research fellows at an equivalent level in academic institutions abroad. Alternatively, candidates may be recommended by a Taiwan overseas mission with a field of study on Taiwan’s foreign relations or cross-Strait relations. Ineligible individuals are those who are currently conducting research, teaching, or studying in Taiwan.
Selected fellowship recipients will receive direct, round-trip airfare subsidy and a monthly stipend (three months to a year depending on duration of research) to pursue advanced studies at Taiwan’s universities, colleges, or research institutes.
For more details on the Taiwan Fellowship, including the online application process, please visit the National Central Library’s Taiwan Fellowship page at http://taiwanfellowship.ncl.edu.tw/eng/index.aspx.
If interested, apply quickly, because the application period ends on June 30.
