By Jose Se̱ase SAIPAN, CNMI Islands (Marianas Variety, Feb. 4, 2011) РIn Palau, from Jan. 31 until March 31, the Embassy of Taiwan will be accepting applications by Palauans who meet the criteria set by the 2011 Taiwan scholarship program.

Six Palauan applicants will be awarded the scholarship this year.

The Palau National Scholarship Board will administer the process of receiving the documents. It will also conduct the screening process.

The board will forward to the embassy by mid-April its recommendation for further review and subsequent transmission of the qualified applications to Taipei for final approval.

The embassy will officially announce the scholarship recipients in June.

The recipients will be provided direct roundtrip airfare between Palau and Taipei, as well as a monthly stipend of US$1,000 to cover tuition, accommodations, insurance and miscellaneous fees during the duration of their schooling at a Taiwanese educational institution.

The Taiwan scholarship spans from three to five years and is for the pursuit of undergraduate, master, doctoral degrees. It also includes one year devoted to learning Mandarin.
