Scholarships

NTU has many scholarships available for prospective students that can be applied for along with submitting your application. The government of Taiwan, other organizations, and your respective colleges also provide scholarships for international students. Being offered a scholarship does not guarantee admission to NTU, and vice versa.

The scholarships on this page are exclusively for degree students (undergraduate and graduate) and mostly for international students. For scholarships for non-degree programs (exchange and visiting), please contact your home university. For scholarships available to students already enrolled at NTU, please refer to Scholarships for Current Students.

Amounts shown in USD below are solely estimates (USD 1 ≒ NTD 30).
