International education and training have long been one of TaiwanICDF’s core operations, among many others.
Human resources development programs play a vital role in assisting partner countries to achieve sustainable development, and education is a crucial mechanism for training workforces in developing countries.
The TaiwanICDF has established the Taiwan International Cooperation Alliance (TICA) with 22 partner universities, setting up an operational platform under this TICA framework to manage and improve the scholarship program.
In 2022, there are 34 programs offered for the TaiwanICDF Scholarship application. For more information about each of the programs offered in 2022, please refer to their individual website.

- Be a citizen of a country on the List of Countries Eligible for TaiwanICDF Scholarship, and satisfy any specific criteria established by his or her country and/or the government of citizenship.
