Heritage & Tutelage
To help bridge the education gap between urban and rural areas in Taiwan, the CDIB Education and Cultural Affairs Foundation established the “Heritage 100 & Tutelage 100” scholarship and grant scheme in 2007. The program utilizes an annual budget of NT$5 million to provide 100 scholarships to economically disadvantaged college students with outstanding potential. In addition to supporting their studies and relieving economic pressure, the foundation also encourages recipients to work as volunteers for 100 hours as tutors to underprivileged children. As the volunteer tutors are disadvantaged students themselves, they can serve as positive role models to children from low income families, giving them much-needed attention and understanding of their school life and life in general.
