The North America Taiwanese Professors’ Association (NATPA) is proud to offer opportunities again this year to support young Taiwanese and Taiwanese American scholars to attend its annual conference.

Travel support will be provided for qualified individuals including transportation up to $350, hotel room shared by two for three nights (7/2 – 7/4), meals during the conference and waived registration fee. Due to limited funding, we may not be able to fund all qualified individuals.

The conference will arrange a special session for YSP awardees to present topics related to Taiwan. The format and topics for the presentations will be decided.

This year, the NATPA will celebrate its 30th birthday by holding a joint conference with the Taiwanese American Conference / East Coast (TAC/EC – 美東台灣人夏令會).

There will be a post-conference tour, 7/5 ~7/7. All YSP awardees are welcome to join but they have to pay for the tour by themselves.
