Ambassador Scholarship

The Taiwan-United States Sister Relations Alliance (TUSA) is pleased to announce that Ambassador Scholarships are again being offered to U.S. college students during the summer of 2012.


There is no requirement for proficiency in Chinese language… indeed, the program’s aim is to provide opportunities to those who have not experienced a study-aboard program either in China or Taiwan, but are eager to pursue some overseas immersion Mandarin and cultural study.   Accepted students will study at the National Pingtung University of Education in Taiwan. The application period ends March 31, 2012, and applications can be submitted on line at


The TUSA program starts July 2nd and ends August 31st, 2012.  A stipend of NT $25,000 (US $800) per month for two months (July & August) will be awarded to each scholarship recipient. The scholarship is budgeted to cover tuition, dormitory fees, four excursions in Taiwan, and incidental insurance. The program is sponsored by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, and a total of 36 Ambassador students will be accepted for the 2012 class.
