The program is designed to offer funding to selected PhD candidates as well as doctoral and post-doctoral scholars to study or conduct research at nearly 30 leading Taiwanese universities and research institutions. The overall support amounts to 40 months of scholarship ideally equally split between the citizens of all V4 countries. Scholars can receive the support from the Visegrad Fund amounting to €1,000/month with an additional one-time travel grant in the amount of €1,000, while the Taiwanese side fully covers tuition fees. Within a reciprocal edition, the program will also support Taiwanese Qianlima scholars coming to the V4 region where the Visegrad Fund will provide lump-sum support to the respective host universities.
The deadline for applications is 30 September 2021, with the first scholars expected to commence in early 2022.
