The Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (FSE) in Taiwan administers the Fulbright Scholar, Student, and Language Teacher Programs. The Foundation was established through a Letter of Agreement in 1947 in Nanjing between the United States of America and the Republic of China, and resumed operations on Taiwan in 1957. In 1964 the letter was updated and the purpose reconfirmed, “to promote further mutual understanding between the United States of America and the Republic of China by wider exchange of knowledge and professional talents through educational contacts.” In 1979 the title was changed to FSE. In 1979 and 2010, additional exchanges of Letters acknowledged the identity of FSE as a non-profit international legal entity under the mandate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA). The Ministry of Education (MOE) and MOFA are strong supporters and partners of FSE along with many county governments. Among other responsibilities, the central role of FSE is to administer the Fulbright Program. There are various other categories of scholarships administered by the Foundation. For the Scholar Program, the grant awards include Teaching, Research, Teaching/Research, Cross-Strait Studies Research, Postdoctoral Research, and U.S.-Taiwan International Education Administrators. For the Student Program, the grant awards include Open Study/Research, Doctoral Dissertation Research, Ph.D. programs across the U.S., M.A. Degree Programs in Taiwan (12 departments in 8 universities), and Ph.D. Degree Programs in Taiwan. For the Language Teaching Program, the grant awards include both American English Teaching Assistants (ETAs) in Taiwan and Taiwanese Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTAs) in the United States.
