Huayu enrichment courses QUESTIONS

Hello everyone,

I have some questions concerning the Huayu scholarships (2016-2017). I know the monthly stipend is NTD 25.000, but does this also include the fees for the languages centres and your plane ticket? Can you guys also recommend a language centre (preferably in Taipei), they all say they are the best! :laughing:

Thanks! :notworthy:

I am pretty sure that you just get the monthly stipend, so no extra money for plane tickets or tuition.

I’m currently preparing my application for 2016 as well and have a few questions too. I figured we might as well gather them all in this thread. :slight_smile:

[ul][li]Where do you specify the length of the scholarship? Are you supposed to check all the terms under “Regular terms” if you want a 1 year scholarship?[/li]
[li]What should write under language proficiency if you are a beginner and haven’t taken TOCFL?[/li][/ul]

Link to the application I’m using.

Your application form is different than mine, I can select the amount of months I would like to go (2,3,6,9 or a year), not the terms. My professor told me that I had to take the TOCFL test or else I would not be able to apply for the scholarship, so I have no idea what it is like for beginners. Maybe you should try to send a mail to the person responsible for the scholarship in your region, hopefully they can help you!

Strange, I can’t find anything in the official documentation saying that you need to take the TOCFL before applying. All I could find is that you will have to pass a TOCFL level 3 before the end of the scholarship if you stay more than 9 months.

As for which language center to choose, I’m currently leaning towards NTNU Mandarin Training Center.

I’m also preparing mine and I’m not gonna put anything here because well, I don’t think saying “hello how are you?” can be categorised as “fair” :whistle:

As for the form I’m using, I’m asked at the very beginning for which length I’m applying 3 6 9 months or summer session and they also say they can decide to shorter it and which length I’d accept in this case.

Yeah, I’ll probably end up not putting anything either. Good luck with your application!
