Taiwan Scholarship Recipients Given Orientation

The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and Belize-Taiwan Alumni Society co-hosted a semi-virtual Orientation for the 2021 Taiwan scholarship recipients on Saturday. Ambassador David Kuan-Chou Chien congratulated the fifty-one aspiring young Belizean awardees before their upcoming trip to Taiwan in late September.  The Governor General Froyla Tzalam, and the Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Technology, Francis Fonseca shared the view that the recipients will be ambassadors of Belize while in Taiwan, and should return to Belize once completing their study to contribute to the national development of Belize with their specialized expertise.  This year, there are a record number of recipients since the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) began offering scholarships in 2002.  The majority of MoFA Taiwan Scholarship recipients will study Mandarin Chinese in a language Center before their degree program. Dominant study fields for the recipients are tropical agriculture, public health, mechanical engineering, and computer science and information technology.  Both scholarship programs cover a round trip economy class ticket, accommodations, tuition fees, credit fees, insurance, textbook costs, and monthly allowance.
