Taiwan’s Ministry of Education added 15 universities in 11 countries and
regions to the funding list of its “Taiwan Studies” project on Monday, seeking more international partnerships to promote worldwide research interest in Taiwan.
The 11 new locations include six nations and regions that have never offered Taiwan Studies courses or exchanges–Belgium, South Korea, Israel, Vietnam, India and Macau–the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry signed up 30 universities in nine countries between 2003 and 2014 to receive funding to promote Taiwan studies, which is defined as “interdisciplinary or academic research and teaching with institutional oversight on topics germane to the study of Taiwan.”
Qualified universities with disciplines including but not limited to Sinology, East Asian Studies, and/or Chinese Studies are invited to submit proposals, the ministry said. [FULL STORY]
