TTT Program is a four to seven-week program beginning on June 2017. Around 200~280 youths of Taiwanese ancestry aged 18~30 will be recruited from various countries through a selective application process. Interns may optionally participate in the Taiwan Exploration Group Activities (including lectures, industry visits, visiting Taiwan attractions etc.) when they apply this program. During 4 to 7weeks of internship, interns will participate their designated internship throughout Taiwan.
With the approval of host institutes, interns can apply for early commencement or extension of their internships. Interns, however, are responsible for the costs of extra days of their stay in Taiwan. Some hosts may provide interns with subsidies for their extension but it varies from different institutes. Interns shall initiate contact with their host institutes for the details in regard to extension and early commencement after getting accepted into the program.
Two types of internships are available:
A. Individual internships: The TTT Program Office will arrange internship positions at various host institutes and companies in Taiwan based on participants' choices.
B. Special group research projects: Interns will be divided into groups of 4~8 people (there must be at least 1 domestic intern in every four interns) to conduct in-depth research on major issues in Taiwan such as future technology, Taiwan’s international participation, etc.
