NTPU and Bureau Français de Taipei signed an MOU to jointly support a scholarship program

On November 3, 2021, National Taipei University (NTPU) and the Bureau Français de Taipei (BFT) signed a memorandum of understanding for a scholarship program to encourage more students to pursue further studies in France. This agreement was signed by Dr. Chen-Jai Lee, President of NTPU, and Mr. Jean-François Casabonne-Masonnave, Director of the Bureau Français de Taipei (BFT).

The ceremony was delivered and witnessed in the presence of Mr. Jean-François Casabonne-Masonnave, the Director of Bureau Français, Mr. Jérôme Bove, Attaché for Science and University Cooperation, Ms. Sasha Ting, Deputy Attaché and Ms. Antoinette Neyra, Project Manager for Science and University Cooperation. National Taipei University representatives comprised Dr. Chen-Jai Lee, the President of NTPU, Dr. Dar-Hsin Chen, Vice President, Dr. Wen-I Lin, Dean of Office of International Affairs, Dr. Pei-Fang Li, Director of International Relations of College of Business and Dr. Josef Kuo-Hsun Ma, Director of International Students Division of OIA.

President Lee expressed his appreciation to Mr. Jean-François Casabonne-Masonnave and the Bureau Français de Taipei (BFT) for their long-standing support to NTPU. He said that France and Taiwan have cultivated a long-term friendship over the past decades and have maintained close ties in the fields of culture, education, human rights, science, and technology. Mr. Jean-François Casabonne-Masonnave, Director of the BFT, emphasized that France was hoping to intensify academic exchanges with NTPU, including staff visits, lectures, joint laboratory projects, and French -Taiwan academia-industry collaboration.

He encouraged the students to go overseas and have a short-term living experience. “Traveling is the education of young people.” Mr. Casabonne-Masonnave indicated that traveling is not only leisure but also an experience in itself. Young people can take advantage of it to live many unique experiences.

During the signing ceremony, the International Office invited students who have lived in France to share their experiences. They showed a video presentation of several exchange and doctoral-degree students currently studying in France. Two Ph.D. students, Mr. Yi-Chung Tsai and Ms. Yi-ting Chen, who are studying in the Faculty of Law at the Aix-Marseille University, expressed that France is a very suitable country to study. Tsai shared that the administrative law in France had a long history of development. Therefore, there have been a wide variety of resources for him during the research process. Ms. Yi-ting Chen said that France has a comfortable and pleasant environment with a rich cultural heritage. She encouraged young students to live in France and broaden their horizons.

The program will offer free flight tickets per year for up to five NTPU students to join student exchange or double-degree programs in one of NTPU partner schools in France. The scholarships also include the reduction or exemption of visa fees and insurance coverage during their stay in France. We encourage all students to apply for exchange or degree programs in France!
