Dear TICA partners and TaiwanICDF scholarship students :
Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

It has been eight years of progress since the TaiwanICDF Scholarship Program was first launched in 1997. Meanwhile, with the strong support and assistance from a number of Taiwan’s prestigious universities, the TaiwanICDF Scholarship Program has set a precedent for providing a variety of English-taught international programs for foreign students to study and pursue their Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in Taiwan. This scholarship program has been leading the trend of internationalization in Taiwan’s higher educational institutes. The TaiwanICDF initiated the establishment of the Taiwan International Cooperation Alliance (TICA) in 2004 in order to facilitate the integration and utilization of Taiwan’s educational and diplomatic resources. The TICA serves as a platform to introduce and support universities allied in this era of internationalization toward greater participation in international cooperation projects, such as volunteer programs, medical services, and information and communication technology (ICT) assistance. The TICA has played a key role in promoting “people’s participation” and “people’s diplomacy” for Taiwan.
Under the TICA’s framework , a “Scholarship Program Administrative Platform” was organized. Now that the platform functions properly, TICA members are able to use the TICA to frequently discuss scholarship related issues in order to improve the scholarship program. Innovative ideas often derive from these discussions and enrich the scholarship program a great deal. One of the results of such group deliberations has been The TICA Newsletter.
