Taiwan Fellowship opportunity for faculty

Dear colleagues,****

** **

I wanted to let you know of a great opportunity to conduct up to one year
of funded research in Taiwan. The Taiwan Fellowship provides return
airfare and a stipend of up to 60,000 New Taiwan Dollars a month for up to
one year. This is equivalent to just over $2000 CAD, and is enough to
generously cover living and research expenses here (rent is typically
$300 CAD/month). ****

The link to the on-line application is here:********

The official language of Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese, but many people,
particularly at universities, speak English quite well and Chinese
ability, while obviously helpful for day-to-day living and research, is not
strictly necessary.****

Taiwan is a beautiful, heavily forested sub-tropical and tropical island
east of China. The climate is excellent, the food world-renowned, and the
people unimaginably friendly, generous and hospitable. I strongly
encourage any of my colleagues to consider applying. I would also be happy
to do what I can to assist in making contacts with the Taiwanese
geographical community.****

Note: the Deadline is very close (July 15); I only received this notice
today. ****
