Important description
About Taiwan International Graduate Program (TIGP)

To keep up with the pace of today's fast evolving scientific and technological world and to promote the internationalization of higher education in Taiwan, Academia Sinica established the Taiwan International Graduate Program (TIGP) in 2002, in collaboration with a consortium of key national research universities. The interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs offered by TIGP are designed to provide advanced scientific training and research environments for those who wish to do advanced research, to think critically, and to experience a mature international academic setting. Since its inception, under the stewardship of the successive directors, TIGP has grown in the number of interdiscplinary programs and expanded in the global distribution of students - currently, there are about 460 students from around 45 countries studying at TIGP.


- TIGP is under the supervision of Academia Sinica, a government-funded foremost research institution with a proud tradition and international recognition
- TIGP, in cooperation with top research universities in Taiwan, offers highly specialized, inter-disciplinary Ph.D. programs at the cutting edge of science and technology
- TIGP offers all-English tutoring and research environment and world-class faculty and state-of-the-art facilities
- TIGP offers graduate fellowships (NTD34,000/month) to each admitted student for up to 3 years

Fellowship and Stipend

TIGP provides fellowship support of NT$34,000 (about US$1,133) per month for all graduate students during the first year of their enrollment.
