Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) Philippine Scholarships

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines offers various scholarship programs to qualified Filipino students. Available scholarships are intended for Filipinos who would like to pursue their further studies in Taiwan (Master’s and Doctoral Degrees) or for those who would like to learn the Mandarin Language.


As the Republic of China (Taiwan) under the leadership of Dr. Tsai Ing-wen, is pushing forward the “New Southbound Policy”, it has opened more slots and types of scholarship programs, which gives more chances for Filipinos to study in Taiwan, learn the traditional Mandarin language, experience the rich and vibrant Taiwanese culture and broaden their international perspectives.


Taiwan is an ideal place for international students who want to learn Mandarin Chinese, also called Mandarin, Huayu, Guoyu, Hanyu, Putonghua, and Zhongwen in Chinese-speaking communities around the world, and Modern Standard Chinese. Taiwan is also an ideal place to learn to read and write Chinese characters, something that will enable you to communicate, in writing, with people who speak other Chinese dialects.


The traditional character forms are still used in Taiwan. Learning these is essential for any student who plans to become a translator and they allow you to more fully appreciate the Chinese language, across the centuries.  The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines has opened various scholarship programs for Filipino students who wish to pursue graduate studies or lean Mandarin language in Taiwan. The Taiwan’s Ministry of Education (MOE) has decided to offer more scholarship slots to increase chances of Filipinos to study in the country.


Due to popular demand and the positive responses from the Filipino students in the previous years, Taiwan’s Ministry of Education (MOE) has decided to offer more slots for the scholarships to give more chances for Filipinos to study in Taiwan, learn the traditional Mandarin language through a different approach, experience the rich and vibrant Taiwanese culture, and broaden their international perspectives through their day-to-day experiences there.

Japan – IMF Scholarship Program For Asia (JISPA)

The Japan-IMF Scholarship Program for Asia (JISPA) was first introduced in 1993. It is funded by the Government of Japan, administered by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and conducted at various graduate schools in Japan.


Its key objective is to contribute to institutional capacity building in economic policymaking to promote the sustainable growth of emerging and developing economies in Asia and the Pacific.


By training future macroeconomic managers in these countries, the JISPA aims to enable them to better formulate sound economic and financial stability policies needed for sustainable growth and development.


The JISPA targets highly motivated government officials who may serve as future macroeconomic policy makers with the capacity and vision to contribute effectively to the economic development of their countries. This scholarship is for government officials.


Scholarship awards are made on the basis of the candidate’s academic record and work background, mathematical and statistics skills, English language proficiency, and potential for contributing to the macroeconomic and financial management and economic development of their country.


The assessment also includes qualities such as the candidate’s commitment to public service, willingness to learn, and openness to new ideas. The program comprises of two tracks: the partnership track, discussed in Part II of this brochure, and the open track, discussed in Part III.


Because of the strong competition for scholarships, the JISPA is highly selective. In 2018-19, a total of 35 new scholarships were made available to candidates for the partnership track. There is no fixed limit on new scholarships for the open track, but generally only a small number of scholarships are awarded.




Scholarships provide for admission and tuition fees, a monthly stipend that includes housing and subsistence allowance, medical and accident insurance, one round trip economy class air ticket, and a lump sum pre-arrival allowance to cover visa application costs, testing fees like TOEFL, and a medical examination, and book shipping costs. The scholarship covers expenses incurred by the scholar only.


Officials who receive the JISPA scholarship cannot accept other scholarships. Scholars are expected to devote full time to their studies while in Japan.


Once accepted into the program, the scholars are expected to attend all classes, maintain a solid academic standing, and conduct themselves appropriately in accordance with the university’s internal guidelines and Japanese laws and regulations.



Currently, the JISPA is open to qualified candidates from the following countries:

Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Lao P.D.R., Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pacific Island Countries, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

Travel to Japan will be economy class by the most direct flights available. The IMF will provide scholars with pre-paid tickets and a travel allowance.


Assistance in applying for visas will be provided by the universities. Accommodation in Japan will be arranged for scholars by the university.


Upon completion of the program, the scholars are expected to return to their home agency to utilize the knowledge and skills acquired through their studies under the JISPA.


The program comprises of two tracks: the partnership track, discussed in Part II of this brochure, and the open track, discussed in Part III. Because of the strong competition for scholarships, the JISPA is highly selective. In 2018-19, a total of 35 new scholarships are available to candidates for the partnership track. There is no fixed limit on new scholarships for the open track, but generally only a small number of scholarships are awarded.


The partnership track of the JISPA allows scholars to study in specially designed graduate level courses concentrating on macroeconomics at an IMF partnership university.  The universities offer programs for JISPA scholars designed to equip scholars to engage in macroeconomic policy dialogue at the international level.


All of the programs have a strong macroeconomic oriented focus, with core courses offered in macroeconomic and financial theory and policies. In addition, the programs offer optional subjects that will help scholars pursue their particular interests and research agenda.


All programs contain a thesis or research paper component that will allow the student to develop policy research skills. After an initial screening of applications, selected candidates will be contacted by the IMF to arrange an interview, which is typically done in their countries with representatives from the partnership universities.


A math and/or English examination may also be administered at this time. The final selection will be made on the basis of the interview, math and English competencies, the application form, and any other supplementary information.


The open track of the JISPA provides support to scholars who wish to study graduate-level macroeconomics or a related field at either the master’s or PhD level at any leading university in Japan. However, priority is given to Ph.D. candidates.


It is geared towards highly motivated officials who are able to identify a course of study in Japan suitable to their professional pursuits in the public sector and supportive of their future work as an economic policy maker. They typically cover all or most of tuition costs and related expenses and provide a monthly stipend for the scholar. The scholarship covers expenses incurred by the scholar only.


For a master’s degree, a scholarship can be awarded for up to two consecutive one-year periods and for a Ph.D. degree for up to three consecutive one-year periods, depending on a university’s requirements under a specific course of study. Annual renewal of the scholarship is subject to approval by the IMF, based on the scholar’s progress, university’s assessment, and sponsoring agency’s consent.
