The Taiwan Fellowship is accepting applications through June 30, 2014. Akin to the Fulbright Scholarship, the Taiwan Fellowship was established by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to promote scholarship in the social sciences and humanities on topics related to Taiwan, cross-Strait relations, mainland China, the Asian-Pacific, and Sinology. 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.
Qualified applicants are professors, associated/assistant professors, post-doctoral researchers, doctoral candidates, or doctoral program students at related departments of overseas universities, or are research fellows at an equivalent level in academic institutions abroad. Alternatively, candidates may be recommended by ROC (Taiwan) overseas missions with a field of study on Taiwan’s foreign relations or cross-Strait relations. Those who are currently conducting research, teaching, or studying in Taiwan are ineligible.
