Taiwan, to provide full scholarships and English programs to foreign students from countries that have a diplomatic relationship with Taiwan since 1998. Such cooperation promotes a better understanding between Taiwan and countries that are friendly to Taiwan and enhances our diplomatic ties with these countries.


To future enhance the internationalization of NPUST, the university also offers full scholarships to foreign students from countries that do not have a diplomatic relationship with Taiwan. Therefore, in addition to ICDF, foreign students who are interested in pursuing their degrees in NPUST can have financial aids from other sources, such as Taiwan scholarship (offered by the Ministry of Education, Taiwan) and NPUST scholarship. Office of International Affairs plays a pivotal role on the internationalization of this university, which is one of goals with top priority for NPUST.
