The after-six-month only 6 month duration scholarships, are given out by the ministry of Education twice a year. And scholarships are given out in inproportion to the region you come from, ie. more to Korea/Japan, but always some to SA, NA, Europe and the like. So if you’re from Africa your set.
The 1-year (extendable) ones this guy’s talking about are from the MOFA and must be applied/recieved through your local TECO before setting foot in taiwan. Money dependant on where your from, and sometimes being the only “whitey” to apply in a derth of taiwanese immigrant children can help, as the final decision is up to the director of that TECO’s cultural division. But this is only if you apply ontime, submit the truckloads of tests, letters of recommendation, and transcripts, and write some decent articles.
All scholarships are only usable with acceptable attendance (not a factor at TLI I hear), 10/week minimum, and only at ministry approved schools(nothing to do with universities as said above).
But now that I think of it why am I helping an idiot like you who simply wants to “get some free money man…”?? ??? This island is way way past its quota of english teachers fitting your description already. Go to China and make it a better place.
