Scholarships for Prospective Students

The Scholarships shown as below are only for new international degree students who are applying for admission in accordance with the Ministry of Education's Regulations for International Students Undertaking Studies in Taiwan. As there are various units offering scholarships and each of their application regulations is different, please take note of the respective application deadlines for different scholarships, as well as the deadline for NTU degree application.

Except the scholarships NTU offers, the school does not provide assistance or consultation to the applications of other scholarships offered by other units; students shall approach the scholarship units by themselves for application. Degree application and scholarship application are separate; being offered a scholarship does not guarantee admission to NTU, and vice versa.

NTU Scholarships

NTU Scholarship application and degree application are conducted together. No additional application documents are required. There will be a checkbox in the application form within the degree application system; by ticking the checkbox, the application process for NTU scholarship will be completed.

The Wenxin Diaolong Scholarship Programs aim to cultivate outstanding young scholars committed to premium research and societal advancement. 文心wenxin (the literary mind) 雕龍diaolong (the carving of dragons), the first comprehensive Chinese literary criticism and critical discourse by Liu Xie (ca. 465 – ca. 521) demonstrates the significance of learning and practice as the prerequisite for becoming a great mind, and this masterpiece over the millennial span has enlightened countless scholars of different disciplines. The Office of International Affairs of National Taiwan University currently plays the key role of implementing Wenxin Master's Scholarship Program and Diaolong Doctoral Scholarship Program to carve more scholarly minds. Over 100 talents have benefited from the Programs to have furthered intercultural competence, acquired top-notch knowledge, and honed professional skills.

All NTU Scholarships are merit-based scholarships. Applicants will be assessed by the reviewing committee based on the strength of their applications. NTU reserves the right not to award scholarship if an applicant is of insufficient merit. The decision of the committee is final. Questions or negotiations regarding the decisions will not be responded. 

The payment process will be handled according to the OIA’s announcement every year. Scholarship information will be sent to the recipient's NTU webmail. Scholarship recipients should check the school mailbox regularly and stay in contact with their department and advisor.
