Taiwan Academy

We're a platform for the international community to learn about the comprehensive development and accomplishments of Taiwan. 

The Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) established the Taiwan Academy in 2011  In order to construct an integrated information platform for Chinese culture. Today, there are currently three contact centers and over 200 contact points in North America. Our institute signed a contract with Taiwan government for becoming one of the 200 Taiwan Academy contact points. 

Taiwan Academy includes three major missions:

  1. Promoting Mandarin Chinese instruction and traditional Chinese characters. You can use online sources for learning Chinese. 
  2. In order to encourage students and scholars to acquire degrees, or engage in research and language study, Taiwan Academy lists several scholarship and grant applications. For instance, there are Taiwan Scholarships (for degrees) and Taiwan Fellowships (for research).
  3. Taiwan Academy also plans to offer high quality cultural performances and learning activities in their resource centers, including painting appreciation, floral arrangement, film lectures, and artistic exhibitions. There are three resource centers in North America (New York, Los Angeles, and Houston).

Study Abroad

There are university-sponsored study abroad programs that provide opportunities for intensive Mandarin Chinese at Taiwan Ming Chuan University. Students will have language courses as well as cultural activities offered by the Mandarin Studies and Culture Center at Ming Chuan University.
