Q1:Are new professors eligible to apply for subsidies under this program?
A1:Yes, all new NCCU faculty members or researchers are eligible between their appointment start dates and the end of the current semester.

Q2:Are new faculty members with MOST projects still in progress eligible to apply for subsidies under this program?
A2:Yes, but the faculty members will be required to write new project conceptualizations instead of using projects in progress or previously completed to apply for subsidies herein.

Q3:What should be included in a project conceptualization? How many pages should there be?
A3:Project conceptualization should basically reflect the format of MOST project applications, which includes: keywords in Chinese and English, abstract, project description, background, purpose, methodology, tasks to be completed and results, and bibliography; the entire document should be 5-10 pages in total.

Q4:Can the subsidies be used to pay for office supplies, equipment or international travel expenses?
A4:The subsidies must be used for purposes relevant to the program.

Q5:How does one use subsidies for international travel expenses?
A5:If the program subsidy is used to pay for the shortfall of the travel expense reimbursement granted by the Ministry of Science and Technology, an expense allocation form must be completed at the time of allocation; if the program subsidy is to be used to pay for international travel, a separate application has to be approved by the NCCU president in advance.
