The Yushan Scholar Project, developed by the MOE, aims to assist higher education institutions in recruiting top international scholars to teach in Taiwan by providing internationally competitive salaries. The goal of this project is to expand international academic capacity in Taiwan’s academic environment and enhance the international influence of Taiwan’s HE. There are two types of applications for Yushan Scholars:

(1) Yushan Scholars are experienced scholars who already have outstanding contributions to their research fields. For these scholars, the universities may appoint them for three years as full-time teaching and research staff members, or as short-term exchange teaching and research staff members, to work for at least 3 months.

 (2) Yushan Young Scholars, are scholars who graduated from their doctoral degree within 10 years and have great potential in performing in their research fields. The Yushan Young Scholars can be appointed by universities as full-time teaching and research staff for at least 5 years.
