Taiwan-United States Sister Relations Alliance (TUSA) Ambassador Summer Scholarship Program

The TUSA Ambassador Summer Scholarship Program is open to U.S. college and university students who are interested in studying Mandarin Chinese during the months of July and August. Accepted students study at the National Pingtung University of Education in Taiwan.

In addition to studying at a first-rate university, students learn about Taiwanese culture and visit several interesting sites to become more familiar with Taiwan and her people. The program has been created with special focus on students without Chinese/Taiwanese heritage, so prior knowledge or experience with the Mandarin language is not needed. Each U.S. student is paired with a Taiwanese study partner to assist in the language and cultural study program.

The scholarship covers tuition, dormitory fees, four excursions and incidental insurance. Meals are not included and students must provide their own airfare to and from Taiwan. The program is sponsored by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, and a total of 36 Ambassador students will be accepted for the 2012 class.

The application period is 1/1/12 to 3/31/12. Completed applications received prior to 2/15/12 will be reviewed for early acceptance. All remaining applications, including those not awarded early admission, will be reviewed and reported by 4/7/12. Apply online at: www.taiwanusalliance.com.
