TIGP International Internship Program


Academia Sinica lunches the TIGP International Internship Program (TIGP-IIP) which is designated to provide visiting students with an opportunity to become familiar with the research environment and graduate programs of Academia Sinica. International applicants with diverse science background are encouraged to obtain hands-on research experience under the supervision of TIGP’s well-established researchers. Hopefully, the experience would motivate interested students to consider careers in science-related disciplines and choose TIGP for their Ph.D. studies.

Outline of the International Internship Program

This program typically takes place during July and August. However the dates can be changed by the host PI upon request. Ideally, the qualified intern will be hosted by the PI of his or her choice. At the end of the internship, interns are required to submit a report and/or give a presentation about their research projects. Upon completion of each intern’s project, an evaluation report will be filed by the host scientist, which may later serve as a supportive document towards application for admission to TIGP.
