FSC to offer wages to those who finish finance course
The Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC, ) said yesterday it will pay disadvantaged minority students between NT$21,600 and NT$28,080 for completing a course in financial services.
The commission will open four courses — in Northern, Central, Southern and Eastern Taiwan – that are open to 100 students each, FSC Chairman William Tseng ( ) said yesterday.
Upon completing the course, each student will be paid for attendance hours based on their final exam scores.
The hourly stipend will range between NT$100 and NT$130, so that earnings range between NT$21,600 and NT$28,000 for the 216-hour course.
The FSC will also counsel alumni interested in earning professional certification in financial services, Tseng said.
Courses and student stipends will be covered by NT$ 100 million in donations from the financial sector, where profits reached a record high last year.
