The Ministry of Education in Taiwan has announced fully funded scholarships for international students who wish to pursue BS, MS, and Phd admissions in public sector Taiwanese Universities. The scholarships include a monthly stipend of over NT$25,000 for admitted students.
If awarded, the Taiwan government scholarship will cover tuition fees of up to NTD 40k, medical expenses, and residential fees for students pursuing bachelors, masters, or Phd degrees at Taiwanese universities. Additionally, bachelors students will receive a stipend of NTD 15k, while MS/Phd students may receive a stipend of about NTD20K.
The MOE Taiwan scholarships are available for undergrad students for up to 4 years, master students for up to 2 years, and doctoral degree students for up to 4 years. However, all students must pass an annual review of the scholarship to continue receiving funding.
To apply for the Taiwan government scholarship, interested students must apply for admission directly at the listed Taiwanese government universities.

Students can apply for admission at multiple Taiwanese universities on MOE or MOFA scholarships. If selected by multiple universities, they will have to choose one scholarship/admission offer and travel to Taiwan in September to complete their enrollment and start their classes.
