International students are eligible to apply for financial scholarships from 1) Taipei Medical University, and 2) Taiwan's governmental agencies, of which there are three:  the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

We encourage you to apply for the TMU scholarship PLUS at least one governmental scholarship, and then choose the scholarship that is most beneficial to you. 


A brief introduction of the scholarships can be found below, and a more detailed description can be found on the TMU OGE website:


TMU Scholarship 
TMU international students (does not include Chinese or Taiwanese citizens) may apply for scholarships as soon as they are admitted to the Institute, using the same TMU online admission website.  Therefore, if you haven't submitted your online admission application, please do that first. For scholarships, students' previous academic performance, extra-curricular activities, work experience, financial situation and other achievements will all be considered. 

PhD students are eligible for Type A scholarship (tuition waiver plus a monthly allowance of NTD $25,000).

Master's students are eligible for either Type B (tuition waiver plus a monthly allowance of NTD $12,000) or Type C (tuition waiver) scholarships.

Students will begin receiving their scholarships upon enrollment and official registration at TMU. 


Taiwan's Governmental Scholarships
To apply, you should contact your local Taiwanese embassy formally known as Taipei Economic and Cultural Office) in your country:

The embassy personnel will talk to you and help you decide which governmental scholarships (MOE, MOST, MOFA) you should apply for. They will also tell you the deadlines for these scholarship applications (the deadlines differ between different agencies, and between different countries; therefore, it is very important to talk to your local embassy first!). If you encounter any difficulties, please contact the GIMBC secretary, Ms. Frannie Han ( frannie[at] ), or Professor Philip Tseng ( philip[at] ).
