Taiwan Scholarship recipients complete course of study

Taipei, May 28 (CNA) About 160 recipients of the Taiwan Scholarship from 50 countries have completed their studies in Taiwan and on Friday expressed their appreciation for the help they received from the program, which aims to build friendship between Taiwan and other nations.
The Taiwan Scholarship Program was established to encourage outstanding international students to undertake degree programs in Taiwan.
While providing study opportunities for a wide range of disciplines, at Taiwan's universities and colleges, this program also aims to promote knowledge, understanding and friendship between people in Taiwan and in countries around the world.
The recipients celebrated their graduation at "the 2010 Graduation Tea Party for Taiwan Scholarship Recipients" held at the National Taiwan Normal University Friday.
Representatives from almost 20 of the countries also attended the event, where they congratulated the graduates and wished them a prosperous future.
Ambassador Jacques Sawadogo of Burkina Faso expressed his appreciation for the invaluable contribution made by Taiwan to train high-level officers of their countries.
"Through training provided to the high-level officers of our countries, Taiwan contributes enormously in the promotion of human resources in our countries; this is the indispensable and essential factors for the economic and social development of our nations, " he stressed.
The graduates also said the education they received was invaluable, enabling them to come to Taiwan and learn something different.
Ketsarin Malipetchara, a graduate of National Chengchi University, is from Thailand and was majoring in an MBA in Taiwan.
She appreciated the opportunity to come to Taiwan to study and would like to find a job here to apply what she learned.
She feels that studying in Taiwan has broadened her views, and said the teaching environment here is open and flexible. Having studied in the United States for one year, she said: "many teachers' teaching styles at my school here are similar to those in the United States and Canada." From Honduras, Marjorie Ellin Mejia Machado and Yuliana Patricia Hinestroza, both majoring in architecture, will graduate from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology this summer.
"Recently I already got some emails from some Taiwanese companies based in Honduras to arrange job interviews, " she said, adding that it's all because she has been able to receive high-quality education as well as learn Chinese.
She will also further her education if she receives another scholarship.
The scholarship program also provides opportunities to increase academic and educational links with international institutions of higher learning and develop outstanding professionals and experts to meet the needs of the global society, according to the Web site of the Ministry of Education (MOE), which administers the program along with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), and the National Science Council of the Executive Yuan (NSC).
