So I want to apply for the Huayu enrichment scholarship but I can not figure out how to do so while in Taiwan. I know people have asked questions related to this before but my concerns are about this application period and my ‘home country’ requirements. According to the MOE website
V. Application and Selection Process
For the application, the applicant must send completed documents to the nearest overseas Taiwan Representative Office in his/her home country; see website for nearest representative office:
mofa.gov.tw/webapp/lp.asp?ct … SD=30&mp=6
In principle, the yearly application period is from February 1 through March 31. Hower, actual application period will be in accordance with the general regulations of the local Taiwan Representive Offices.
For application guidelines and forms, scholarship quotas, as well as information regarding the selection process and outcome announcement, applicants may directly contact the relevant representative offices, by the end of January.
A complete application includes the following materials:
a. One copy of the completed application form.
b. One photocopy of the passport or other nationality certificates.
c. One photocopy of the highest-level diploma and a complete grade transcript.
d. Supporting admission application materials (e.g. photocopies of application forms for Mandarin training centers).
e. Additional documents as specified by individual representative offices (e.g. letters of reference). [/quote]
I ‘e-mailed’ the US office last week (e-mail is in quotes because the only way I could find to contact them was through a ‘contact us with questions’ form) but they haven’t responded and I don’t know what the deadline is, if I need additional documents, if I can fax everything instead of mail it, and if I can simply send everything to someplace in Taiwan instead of America.
So basically, anyone who has gone through this before or knows how I can get in contact with someone with answers, please let me know!!
