Students who are enrolled with the University of the Azores and that have an interest in learning Mandarin Chinese can now receive a scholarship into a university that will help them out. Thanks to a partnership between Taiwan and Portugal, four students can study for six months Mandarin Chinese in Taiwan. Each of the scholarships has a monthly value of €625, although transportation and accommodation costs are not included.
These scholarships are only awarded to students who have a real interest in developing their knowledge of Mandarin Chinese. Any applicant to the scholarship must be at least 18 years old and he must have at least a high school diploma available. Only Portuguese citizens are allowed to register for one of these Mandarin Chinese scholarships.
