2017 CTCI Scholarship for Oversea Graduate Students in Taiwan(Application deadline:August 8,2017)

I. Foreword

CTCI Foundation was established on October 12, 1959. As a pioneer of new technologies, CTCI Foundation commits itself to developing technological talents for Taiwan and thereby facilitates Taiwan’s economic development and assists Taiwan’s manufacturing industries to upgrade their productivity. In 1962, the Engineering Education Research Fund was raised to award scholarships to distinguished undergraduate and graduate students. As of 2016, the scholarships had been awarded to approximately 3,700 domestic students. Since 2014, the scholarships are extended to include outstanding oversea graduate students (including international students, oversea Chinese students, students from Mainland China, students from Hong Kong and Macao) in Taiwan from selected fields of study in designated universities to further their education. From last year, life grants can be applied with scholarship for oversea graduate students who need economic help. In 2017, life grants have been separated from scholarship, which can be applied respectively to support oversea graduate students with economic difficulty to ensure their living when studying in Taiwan.
