The 2018 Taiwan Scholarship and Huayu Enrichment Scholarship (HES) are now open for application until March 31. Offered by Taiwan's Ministry of Education, Malaysian students who want to further their studies in Taiwan are encouraged to send in their applications.

The Taiwan Scholarship encourages outstanding Malaysian students to pursue their undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Taiwan. The scholarship awards students NT$40,000 (RM5,323) each semester to cover tuition and miscellaneous expenses. Undergraduate students will also be offered a monthly stipend of NT$15,000 (RM1,996), while postgraduate students get NT$20,000 per month (RM2,661).

To facilitate the New Southbound Policy, the number of Taiwan Scholarships available for Malaysians has increased from 20 to 35.

The HES is offered to Mandarin learners including beginners for study at any accredited Mandarin Language Centre in a university or college in Taiwan. Recipients will be awarded a monthly stipend of NT$25,000 (RM3,327). These Huayu Enrichment courses include summer term durations (June to July, or July to August), or short-term classes which may last from three months to a year.
