Representing Taiwan’s Ministry of Education, the Education Division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York (TECO-NY), aims to promote educational relationships between Taiwan and the 4 states of Connecticut (CT), New Jersey (NJ), New York (NY), and Pennsylvania (PA). Our staff is committed to providing the best possible assistance to scholars, students, educators, and government officials in the region.
Since its inception in 1992 as the "Cultural Division," the Education Division has been providing information about Taiwan's education to individuals and organizations. This includes helping institutes of higher learning build academic links and cooperative programs; assisting self-funded and government-sponsored Taiwanese students pursue studies in the region; facilitating exchange visits of officials, scholars, and teachers; administering scholarships to American students; and sponsoring various cultural and educational activities.
From 2004 to 2009, the Cultural Division set up the "Taiwan Educational Information Center" (TEIC), which promoted Taiwan's various educational opportunities. Its aim was to facilitate Americans undertaking intensive language training and/or pursuing degree programs in Taiwan.
