Taiwan in the 21st Century: At the Crossroads of Past and Future

Vaccine Requirements


Boise State University, through the Center for Global Engagement, will sponsor Idaho’s faculty members and K-12 educators to participate in a Fulbright-Hays Title VI Group Project Abroad (GPA). The program focuses on curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for teachers and faculty members. The sponsorship is possible thanks to a grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

This Boise State Program will focus on East Asian cultures and Mandarin language. The theme for the Program is Taiwan in the 21st Century: At the Crossroads of Past and Future. Selected participants will travel in a group to Taichung, Taiwan (June 2023) for 4 weeks and engage in a language and cultural immersion experience at host Providence University. The partner university will provide formal Mandarin language instruction, lectures on Taiwanese current affairs, experiential learning opportunities, individual exploration and reflection. This program will grant a unique opportunity for participants to gain first-hand experiences in the Taiwanese language and culture to inform new or enhance existing instructional curriculum, as it relates to the theme of this Program.
