The central government has issued scholarships to full-time junior college students, graduate students, and doctoral students in Taiwan who are studying in mainland universities and research institutes, expanding the scope of scholarships and raising the standard of rewards. In the same year, the Ministry of Education also issued a policy to issue employment registration cards, issue employment agreements to Taiwanese students who have qualified for employment in mainland China and have a willingness to work, and to provide Taiwanese young people with more support and assistance in studying, employment, and entrepreneurship in the mainland. In the past three years, more than 7,000 Taiwanese students have received scholarships, and more and more Taiwanese young people hope to come to the mainland to pursue, build and realize dreams.
In the future, the Ministry of Education will further improve policy arrangements, optimize policy guarantees, and promote Taiwan students to enjoy the same standards as mainland students in terms of average student funding, graduate bursaries, academic scholarships, and subsidies for poor students.
