Establishment of the Taiwan Scholarship Programs
International exchanges and cooperation are needed in all facets of higher education, including educational theory and pedagogy, resources, innovation and cultivation of talent. The countries who receive or admit these exchange students will also be stimulated and revitalized by them; their educational environments will become more diverse, holistic, universal in outlook. Therefore, the countries participating in exchange programs can often benefit from a win-win cooperative relationship.Faced with this new trend of international cooperation and educational exchange, Taiwan must also assume its international responsibility and take part. In 2004, the Executive Yuan announced the "Taiwan Scholarship and Huayu Enrichment Scholarship Program." This joint project of the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Science and Technology is concerned with the areas of education, diplomacy, economics and academic innovation.
Establishment of the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship Programs
The goals of the Taiwan Scholarship are to bring to Taiwan foreign students with potential who are interested in the Mandarin language, to promote Mandarin and traditional Chinese writing, and to increase foreign students' understanding of the culture and historical development of Taiwan. It is hoped that cultivating young overseas talent will establish a long-term cooperative relationship between Taiwan and other countries, promote economic, commercial, educational and cultural exchanges, and improve Taiwan's global competitiveness and international visibility.
