Rising Star Fellowships for AS-TIGP Ph.D. Students (Pilot Program)
Objectives of the Rising Star Fellowship:
Academia Sinica's missions include the recruitment of promising and talented young researchers who have achieved scholarly distinction to join the Taiwan International Graduate Program (TIGP).
The Rising Star Fellowship program, and the regulations below, have been established to promote this end.
This annual fellowship will only be awarded to outstanding first-year TIGP program students.
Rising Star Fellowship awardees can receive a monthly stipend of NT$40,000 for their first three years at the TIGP. However, awardees who fail to pass an annual academic performance evaluation will be disqualified and their funding suspended.
Each TIGP program should submit its list of recommended awardees to the TIGP Office for review by the end of February. A letter of recommendation from each program's coordinator is required.
The list of awardee recommendations cannot be changed after selections have been approved.
Should an awardee be involved in a violation of academic ethics, his or her case will be processed according to the "Guidelines for the Establishment and Operation of Ethics Committees at All Levels, Academia Sinica."
