Taiwan Tech Trek 2011
TTT 2011 is an eight-week program beginning late-June. Around 200~250 youths of Taiwanese ancestry aged 18~30 will be recruited from various countries through a selective application process. Interns will participate in a five-day group orientation (June 27th~July 1st) and thereafter proceed to their designated internship positions throughout Taiwan for seven weeks of internship (July 4th ~August 20th). With the approval of host institutes and NSC, 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. At the end of the program, interns will have to present the results of their work at an academic conference.
