About TIGP-Sustainable Chemical Science & Technology Program (SCST)
Eligibility and other criteria
The international Ph.D. program of Sustainable Chemical Science and Technology is designed to offer specific training and research opportunities to Ph.D. students who are interested in the following areas: 1.develop optoelectronic materials and their applications related to sustainable energy 2.construction of supramolecular materials for recognition, self-assembly, and identification of chemical species 3. new drug development related to human diseases 4. understanding of disease mechanisms, 5. study in cell structure and function 6. development of biosensors 7. green technology of organic synthesis 8. energy related catalysis 9. technology for environmental monitoring and therapy. This program is a collaborative effort between Academia Sinica and National Chiao Tung University. In accordance with these research areas, the sustainable chemical science and technology program is divided into three categories, namely, sustainable materials, sustainable life science and sustainable catalyst & synthesis. The number of total students admitted to Sustainable Chemical Science and Technology Program every year is limited to twenty. The bulk of these students are international students with reasonable proficiency in the use of the English language. However, highly qualified Taiwanese students (up to 10 people) with adequate English proficiency are also considered. Students may do their thesis research with faculty whose principal appointments are associated with the National Chiao Tung University.
Fellowship and Stipend
TIGP provides fellowship support of NT$34,000 (about over US$1000) per month for all graduate students during the first year of their enrollment. The support will be extended for another two years upon evidence of satisfactory progress towards the degree. In subsequent years, the financial support will be provided by the student?s thesis advisor. The amount of the support will be at the discretion of the advisor.
