University anti-poverty programmes

Does your university as a body have targets to admit students who fall into the bottom 20% of household income group in the country? (domestic)

The University offers learning opportunities not only to students from lower-income households but also to those who are culturally or economically disadvantaged, or physically or mentally disabled.
1. Departments are encouraged to proactively set up additional quota and admission streams.
(1) In recent years, the University has been proactively allotting additional quota for aboriginal and physically or mentally disabled students to be admitted through various pathways.
(2) To encourage departments to proactively allot additional quota to culturally or economically disadvantaged students, the University has stipulated in their ‘Regulations Regarding the Establishment and Promotion of the Recruitment Strategy Committee’ that each department shall be granted an additional operating fund of TWD 5,000 for each actual enrolment as part of the additional quota per class in the current academic year (including mainland Chinese, overseas compatriots, international students, physically or mentally disabled students, and aboriginal students). (For details, refer to the ‘Regulations Regarding the Establishment and Promotion of the Recruitment Strategy Committee’)
(3) To accommodate to the holistic needs of disadvantaged students, the University has implemented supportive measures pertaining to the second-round screening for individual applications since the 2018/19 academic year, which include giving preference to students from low-income or middle-to-low-income households and families in hardship and loosening the second-round screening criteria. Since the 2019/20 academic year, the Eagle Recruitment Stream has been established to allow students to compensate for their lack of economic resources by emphasising their motivation to learn, their past endeavours in academic studies, and personal growth through measures such as the loosening of GSAT screening criteria, application fee waivers, and exemption from interviews (written review only). (For details, refer to the ‘Departmental Regulations on Individual Applications’ from 2018/19 and 2019/20)
2. Alleviate the financial burden of economically disadvantaged applicants: application fee waivers and travel and accommodation allowances for individual applications.
(1) The University offers application fee waivers for economically disadvantaged applicants (from low-income or middle-to-low-income households) for its self-administered entrance examinations, including ‘Second-round Screening of Individuals Applications for Bachelor’s Degrees’, ‘Transfer Examination for Bachelor’s Degrees’, ‘Referral Screening and Entrance Examination for Master’s and Doctoral Degrees’, and ‘Individual Recruitment of Physically or Mentally Disabled Students for Bachelor’s Degrees’.
(2) During the second-round screening of individual applications, applicants are granted a travel allowance ranging from TWD 250 to TWD 2,000, depending on their place of residence. They are also granted an accommodation allowance of TWD 1,000. The allowances will be distributed by the department to eligible candidates on the day of the screening. (For details, refer to ‘Instructions to Candidates for Individual Applications’ in 2018/19 and 2019/20.)
