About the TaiwanICDF

The International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) is dedicated to


boosting socio-economic development, enhancing human resources and promoting
economic relations in a range of developing partner countries. We also offer humanitarian
assistance and provide aid in the event of natural disasters or international refugee crises.
To carry out our mission, we offer a range of assistance that centers on four core
operations: lending and investment, technical cooperation,humanitarian assistance,
and international education and training. Our Fund is used to make direct or indirect
investments and to finance lending operations. Revenues generated by the Fund are
used to support our bilateral or multilateral technical cooperation projects, humanitarian
assistance operations and education and training.
Every new project from the TaiwanICDF proceeds according to a rigorous project cycle
and is backed by mutual covenants signed in cooperation with relevant stakeholders. Our
projects are designed to address the strategic development goals of each of our partner
countries, pay due consideration to associated regional trends, and maximize results by
employing the right combination of capital and technical cooperation.
Ultimately, our work is tailor-made to the local needs of each partner country. Our
assistance covers a variety of contemporary development issues such as environmental
protection, public health, agriculture, education and information and communications
technology.
We are also acting to improve human resources and build institutional capacity at the
TaiwanICDF itself. We believe that as a stronger, more professional organization, we
will be better placed to advise decision-making bodies within our government. Efforts
to improve our own organization will also help us to deepen the coverage of our projects
and transfer technological know-how on to our partners. We aspire to making the most
effective use of manpower and resources, and replicating and adapting successful
experiences from one partner country to another.

01

Overview of the International Higher


Education Scholarship Program
International education and training from the TaiwanICDF shares Taiwans own
development experiences with developing partner countries around the world. Our
aim is to help these partner countries cultivate and nurture a talented pool of human
resources.
To achieve this objective, our International Education and Training Department
performs a range of interconnected operations. Our in-depth, professional workshops
are dedicated to contemporary trends in development, while our higher education
scholarship program draws on expertise at Taiwanese universities to strengthen
know-how in critical disciplines. We also cooperate with a number of international
organizations on training projects.
Our International Higher Education Scholarship Program was initiated in 1998 when
we joined forces with a group of Taiwanese universities to offer scholarships for a
number of English-language courses, up to and including Ph.D. level.
The program enables talented young citizens to come to Taiwan to pursue their higher
education and follow course materials and learning objectives that are specifically
designed to address key development issues. The program provides full financial
support for tuition and living expenses, and having grown in scope over the years,
now covers 35 courses from 21 universities 12 bachelor's, 21 master's and two
Ph.D. programs. These courses focus on the development needs of our partner
countries by addressing issues such as tropical agriculture, aquatic sciences, business
administration, information technology, human resource development, medicine and
public health, or various fields of engineering. All of these disciplines are in high
demand in our developing partner countries. We aim to boost social development and
economic growth by generating a pool of quality human resources.
Each year we provide scholarships to around 195 new students.
