The Taiwan-United States Sister Relations Alliance (TUSA) Summer Scholarship Program is an Ambassador program. A unique program especially designed for students who will be representing their state as well as the United States, acting as ambassadors to Taiwan. Upon returning to the United States, students will be expected to act as ambassadors of good will for both the United States and Taiwan whenever the opportunity presents itself. TUSA wants to create closer friendships and understanding between the people of the United States and the people of Taiwan. To accomplish our objective, we are offering a unique program to college/university undergraduate/graduate students who are interested in studying Mandarin (Chinese) language and learning about Taiwanese culture.
