A2: No. You can only apply for one program at one of the TICA universities each year.

Q3: I realized that my printed form has some mistakes, what should I do?

A3: If you discover any mistakes or typos in your printed form, you can apply again (please remember to type carefully). However, you will need to take your final, corrected forms to the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office for their first review.

Please be aware that your printed forms must be identical to the information you saved in the online system, since the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office may refer to both versions during their first review.

Q4: What if I cannot apply for the TaiwanICDF scholarship program due to my nationality?

A4: We only offer TaiwanICDF scholarships to citizens of nations in our list of eligible countries. If your country does not appear on our list, you are not eligible to apply.

Q5: My country is on the list of eligible countries, but there is no ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office here. Where can I send my documents?

A5: If there is no ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office in your country, please send your documents to the nearest ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office. Please see http://www.boca.gov.tw/mp?mp=2 to find the nearest such point of contact.

Q6: If I gain admission to the university I applied to, does that mean that I have also got the TaiwanICDF scholarship?

A6: If you are a successful recipient of a TaiwanICDF scholarship, you will receive an acceptance letter through the ROC (Taiwan) Embassy/ Consulate General/ Representative Office to whom you originally applied. Therefore, gaining admission from the university you applied to does not necessarily mean that you have also been given a TaiwanICDF scholarship.
