Huayu Enrichment Scholarship (HES)


The Ministry of Education (MOE) in the Republic of China (Taiwan) established the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship (HES) program to encourage international students (except Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao SAR students) to undertake Mandarin language courses in the Republic of China (Taiwan), to provide opportunities to increase understanding of Taiwanese culture and society, and to promote mutual understanding and interactions between Taiwan and the international community.

The scholarship application and selection procedures will be conducted by the Education Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Boston (TECO-Boston), the branch office of the MOE in the New England region including Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Award Value

A monthly stipend of NT $25,000 (Exchange Rate (Approx.): 32NTD=1 USD)


HES awards students taking Mandarin language courses including short term classes which may last 2, 3, 6, 9 months or one full year respectively, depending on the award availability. In principle, the duration of the scholarship is from September 1, 2024 to August 31, 2025 (except for Summer session typically from June to August).
