NSYSU Taiwan-Europe Connectivity Scholarship



Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) established the Taiwan-Europe Connectivity Scholarship in 2021 to encourage European students to undertake short-term studies in Taiwan and enhance Mandarin Chinese proficiency. National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU) is one of the major universities to receive a comprehensive grant to provide scholarships to students of European universities. The scholarship slots are reviewed and adjusted each year. 



Students (without a Chinese or Taiwanese nationality) enrolling at a university in the below-mentioned countries are eligible for the TEC scholarship:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K., Ukraine


Selection Process

1. In the exchange program nomination process, partners from eligible countries should nominate students for the TEC scholarship at the same time. They are asked to put priority numbers for eligible students as a way of nomination. The measurements for the priority numbers shall be decided by our partners. 

2. NSYSU will distribute the scholarship slots to each institution as evenly as possible. The priority numbers help us decide who shall receive the scholarship.

3. NSYSU will send terms and conditions to the selected students and ask them to sign them back in time. Students are considered to be awarded the scholarship once they fulfill this.



  • If any changes to the selection process, we will announce them to our partners before the exchange nomination starts.


Conditions for Receiving the Full Scholarship

1. Students must take and pass the Chinese course NSYSU offers for exchange students (4 hours per week, 3 credits).

2. Students should fully cooperate with the regulations and measures at NSYSU and in Taiwan.

3. MOFA and NSYSU might ask the recipients to take interviews or participate in surveys about their experience in Taiwan.
