The Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (FSE) in Taiwan administers the Fulbright Scholar, Student, and Language Teacher Programs.
Fulbright is not an open-ended program for personal experience; rather all grantees go abroad with predesigned programs and responsibilities. This is the best way to add to the stock of knowledge, gain access to local environments, and share their perceptions of their homes.
In 2019-2020; 128 Fulbright ETAs served in local schools until the program was temporarily suspended by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2018 FSE embarked on a new experiment to bring undergraduates to Taiwan for study abroad experiences by establishing the Consortium for Study Abroad in Taiwan (CSAT). The hope is to seed the future pool of Fulbrighters.
The Fulbright US Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs.
Taiwan’s Fulbright ETA program first began in 2003 in Yilan, and has since expanded to Kaohsiung, Kinmen, Taipei, Taichung, Taitung, Hualien, Changhua, Yunlin and New Taipei City.
The Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) program is a collaborative effort between the United States and host countries around the world; bringing together recent American graduates and local English teachers, the program promotes not only English language learning but also cross-cultural exchange.
The Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship is centered around teaching English and sharing American culture with elementary and middle school children throughout Taiwan.
The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program in Taiwan helps to improve the teaching of the English language at Taiwan’s elementary schools and junior high schools. It aims to strengthen educational and cultural relationships between the United States and Taiwan.
The ETA program in Taiwan offers a unique opportunity for ETAs to advance their teaching skills and immerse themselves in the educational and cultural environment of Taiwan.
