TECO opens higher education scholarship


The 2016 International Higher Education Scholarship Program (IHESP) sponsored by the Taiwan’s International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF) is now open for Filipino citizens to apply through the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines.

The application period is until March 18.

In partnership with 20 Universities in Taiwan and offers 23 different graduate or PhD programs conducted entirely in English, IHESP enables talented young citizens to come to Taiwan to pursue their higher education and study relevant courses that are specifically designed to address key development issues.

The program also aims to boost social development and economic growth by generating a pool of quality human resources.

These courses focus on the development needs of our partner countries by addressing issues such as tropical agriculture, aquatic, sciences, business administration, information technology, human resource development, medicine and public health, or various fields of engineering.

The IHESP provides each recipient with full financial support for tuition, living expenses, economic class roundtrip air tickets, credit fees, insurance, textbook costs and monthly stipend during the duration of educational program in Taiwan.

Each recipient receives a monthly stipend of NT$15,000 (P20,500) in Master Program and $17,000 (P21,900) in PhD Program respectively.
