The Embassy of China (Taiwan) is pleased to announce that the 2019 Taiwan ICDF Scholarship Programme has officially opened. The embassy is now accepting applications from Belizean students who are seeking to further their education in their respective fields in Taiwan.  It is one of the most popular scholarship programmes with more than three hundred students benefitting since the inception of the programme.

“The Taiwan ICDF will provide every scholarship recipient a round trip air ticket, housing, tuition, text books cost, insurance and all the scholarship programs will be taught in English. This is a very meaningful scholarship program because it cannot only enhance the people to people diplomacy between Taiwan and Belize; it can also enhance bilateral relations between our two countries. I think if you want to broaden your horizon maybe you can try to pursue your studies aboard and I think Taiwan is a very good choice. Taiwan is in the heart of Asia. We have expertise in different areas for example, in health and medicine, IT industry and also business management. So I think for people who want to broaden their skills or their horizon, the students who want to pursue further studies abroad, I Belize that Taiwan is a very nice choice.”


The deadline to submit applications is March fifteenth.  More information can be found at
