Recent UMaine visit enhances cooperation with Taiwan educational institutions

Rose Chen, director of the Education Division at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Boston, visited the University of Maine Nov. 27–28, hosted by the Office of International Programs.

The goal of her visit was to enhance cooperation between UMaine and secondary and tertiary educational institutions in Taiwan.

Chen’s office offers scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students to study Mandarin in Taiwan for the summer, a semester or an academic year through the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship; and provides support for faculty to conduct research in Taiwan and stipends to support leading a travel study course to Taiwan.
