There is no requirement for proficiency in Chinese language… indeed, the program’s aim is to provide opportunities to those who have not experienced a study-aboard program either in China or Taiwan, but are eager to pursue some overseas immersion Mandarin and cultural study.   Accepted students will be enrolled in the Chinese Language Center at the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU,  ) in Tainan City, Taiwan. The University is recognized as one of the two top institutions of higher education in Taiwan.  The application period ends on  Feb. 15, 2013 for early  acceptance  and  March 31, 2013 for  general acceptance. Applications can be submitted on line at .

The 2013 TUSA program starts July 1 and ends August 23th.  A stipend of NT $25,000 (US $800) per month for two months (July & August) will be awarded to each scholarship recipient. The scholarship is budgeted to cover tuition, dormitory fees, all program-related travel and excursions, and accident/outpatient health insurance. The program is sponsored by  the  Ministry of Education  in Taiwan,  and a total of 36 ‘Ambassador’ students will be accepted for the 2013 class.
