Applicants are encouraged to obtain a letter of invitation from the potential host institution and submit it at the time of application. Applicants without an invitation letter may indicate preferred affiliations, Fulbright Taiwan will arrange and finalize all affiliations in consultation with potential hosts.
Host institutions have offered some of the following services to previous Fulbright scholars per request: housing relocation assistance, university office space, secretarial assistance, access to library resources, IT and laboratory facilities, on-campus healthcare and extracurricular resources (sports, etc). University housing is not usually available for research-only grantees. The Foundation for Scholarly Exchange (Fulbright Taiwan) will provide a partial housing supplement.
Previous research grantees have been affiliated with such organizations as Academia Sinica, National Central Library, National Palace Museum, National Health Research Institute, National Museum of Marine Biology & Aquarium, and many universities.
Collaboration with local scholars is highly desirable.
