About the Foundation


The Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (Fulbright Taiwan)


The Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (Fulbright Taiwan) is one of the 50+ bi-national/bilateral organizations in the world established specifically to administer the Fulbright educational exchange program outside the U.S. Over the past 60 years, the Foundation has financed over 1,600 Taiwan Fulbright grantees to the U.S. and more than 1,600 U.S. Fulbright grantees coming to Taiwan.

In addition to screening and selecting candidates for Fulbright grants for Taiwan scholars, researchers, students and specialists to go to the U.S., the Foundation also makes the final selection and, in some cases, arranges placement for U.S. lecturers, researchers and students coming to Taiwan. For U.S. grantees, the Foundation offers pre-arrival information, post-arrival assistance and orientation; issues maintenance stipends and other allowances; provides letters of introduction to local government agencies and research-related institutions; and is available to assist grantees in any other ways possible during their stay in Taiwan.

Besides, in 1962, the Foundation opened the U.S. Education Information Center for Taiwan students who need information about study in the U.S. The Foundation also cooperates with Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung public libraries, where three U.S. education information centers were jointly established by the Ministry of Education and the American Institute in Taiwan, to offer information about studying in the U.S.
