Tai­wan Schol­ar­ship Ap­pli­ca­tion Open

The Star (St. Lucia) - - THE LIGHT SIDE -

Dozens of stu­dents and peo­ple hop­ing to be con­sid­ered for this year’s Tai­wanese schol­ar­ship showed up to the Orchid Cen­tre in Union on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 16 for a brief­ing ses­sion by the Tai­wanese Em­bassy. There, rep­re­sen­ta­tives shared de­tails of the avail­able schol­ar­ships and el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ments. The schol­ar­ship pro­grammes pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for Saint Lu­cians to study in Tai­wan for Bach­e­lor, Mas­ter or PhD de­grees.

At Thurs­day’s event, out­go­ing Tai­wanese Am­bas­sador Ray Mou shared en­cour­ag­ing re­marks with stu­dents, then Guan-ting Luo, Third Sec­re­tary at the Em­bassy, de­tailed the ap­pli­ca­tion process for the 2017 Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs (MOFA) Schol­ar­ship, In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment Fund (ICDF) Schol­ar­ship and I-SHOU Med­i­cal Schol­ar­ship.

As part of a list of re­quire­ments, ap­pli­cants are re­quested to ap­ply to only one pro­gramme; mul­ti­ple ap­pli­ca­tions will re­sult in dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion. The Em­bassy will in­ter­view qual­i­fied ap­pli­cants, who will be no­ti­fied by phone whether they have been se­lected.

For the I-SHOU Med­i­cal Schol­ar­ship ap­pli­cants, both a writ­ten exam and an in­ter­view will be held at the Em­bassy. The writ­ten exam, ten­ta­tively sched­uled for April 21, 2017, cov­ers top­ics on English, Chem­istry and Bi­ol­ogy. The in­ter­view for that schol­ar­ship will be con­ducted via Skype with pro­fes­sors from Tai­wan and the Em­bassy.

The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tion to this year’s schol­ar­ship is March 15, 2017. The list of awardees will be posted on the Em­bassy’s web­site on June 30, 2017.

Saint Lu­cians turned out in large num­bers to this year’s Tai­wanese schol­ar­ship brief­ing event.
