Tainan, Jan. 13 (CNA) National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Tainan signed a memorandum of understanding with the Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (Fulbright Taiwan) on Wednesday to allow broader exchanges with American students.

With the signing of the MOU, the university has become part of the Consortium for Study Abroad in Taiwan (CSAT), a pilot program launched by Fulbright Taiwan to encourage educational exchanges, according to the foundation.

Under the CSAT, students enrolled at any university in the U.S. are eligible to apply for NCKU regular semester exchange programs, intensive summer classes for Mandarin language learning and participation in hands-on projects, according to the university.

Following Wednesday's signing of the MOU, the two sides will work out the finer details of the program, said NCKU, which is based in Tainan, southern Taiwan.   [FULL  STO-RY]
