Article 3 Duration of the scholarship
Annual award periods are from September 1st through August 31st of the following year. It begins from the month that recipients arrive and matriculate at MCU.

The recipients, who already have been awarded with a scholarship from Taiwan governmental agencies, or the other scholarships from MCU, can not apply for any other scholarships. Otherwise, MCU will automatically suspend recipient’s scholarships and inform the related governmental agencies in writing in order to cancel recipient’s scholarship status and recover the scholarships already been granted.
Article 5 Suspension and Revocation of Scholarship
If the average academic grades of scholarship recipients in any given semester do not meet the requirements set by the MCU committee, MCU will suspend the recipients’ scholarships for the first month of the following semester（i.e. February of spring semester-, September of Fall semester）.
The MCU committee stipulates that the undergraduate recipient’s academic average cannot be less than 60%, while a master and doctoral student’s academic average cannot be less than 70%.

Article 6 Application Procedures of Tuition Deduction Service
- The applicant must submit the next semester Tuition Form and Tuition Deduction Service Request Form to Division of International Education and Exchange to apply for the service, within two weeks before the final exam starts in the given semester.

That is to say that the deduction period of fall semester is applicable from September to December; spring semester is from February to May. Applicants may receive the monthly stipends in full amount in January, June, July and August.
- If the applicant’s academic average fails to meet the passing grade, MCU will suspend the recipient’s scholarship for the first month of the following semester. Thus, the tuition deduction period shall start from the second month of the semester for three successive months.
Other matters not stipulated in the guidelines should follow the relevant MCU and MOE (or the other related government agencies) regulations.
