2016 TICA CUP Held At NCKU-wn

The TICA CUP aims to help students enhance their team spirit and their sense of belonging not only for their universities but also for TaiwanICDF.
In order to encourage interaction among the TaiwanICDF scholarship students enrolled in its International Higher Education Scholarship Program at TICA member universities, the TaiwanICDF holds the annual TICA CUP.
Since the TaiwanICDF's TICA universities are spread throughout Taiwan, it is not always easy for overseas scholarship students to meet one another, so the TICA Cup not only offers students the opportunity to get together with fellow students from other institutions, but also offers the chance to be contacted by faculties at other universities, expanding their learning horizons and forming an international network.
The TaiwanICDF has actively promoted know-how as part of its overseas aid in recent years, assisting partners to cultivate human resources.
Since 1998, 1,157 government officials and professionals from 53 countries have come to Taiwan as part of the TaiwanICDF scholarship program, which now offers a total of 30 English-language bachelor's, master's and Ph.D. programs at 20 Taiwanese universities.
On returning home after graduation, many graduates apply what they have learned in Taiwan to support their country's national development, often going on to become key government officials.
