Officials from Cagayan State University recently participated in the Philippines Intense Education Exhibit, an event aimed at bringing together educational institutions, industry leaders and students. The exhibit featured presentations from various Taiwan universities showcasing their educational programs and scholarship opportunities, with the goal of strengthening the relationship between the Philippines and Taiwan.

The Intense Program, a collaborative effort involving the Taiwan Ministry of Education, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines and participating Taiwanese universities such as Kun Shan University, Cheng Shiu University and Minghsin University of Science and Technology, provided a platform for Philippine universities to engage in Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with their Taiwan and Philippine counterparts. Notable attendees at the MOU signing included CHED Commissioner Agnes Valenzuela and Manila Economic Cultural Office BOD Member Charo Munsayac.

With a fund of 160 million US dollars over five years, the Intense Program offers CSU and other Philippine University students the opportunity to study abroad through a full scholarship, monthly allowance and potential job prospects upon graduation. The program focuses on attracting students aligned with science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and finance disciplines.

In a separate event, OIC President Ibanez signed MOUs between Deh Hyu College of Nursing and Health and Fo Guang University Taiwan, outlining plans for student and faculty mobilization, joint research activities, publication collaborations, seminar participation, academic meetings, exchange of instructional materials and special short-term academic programs.

Among the CSU officials present at the Intense Program exhibit and MOU signing were VP Mariden Cauilan, VP Junel Guzman, CEO Froilan Pacris, CEO Roger Rumpon, University Director for Internationalization Kristine Lara, EA to the President and University Information Officer Marie Cauilan, CSU Gonzaga Coordinator for Partnership Charisma Vivit and Ms. Kristine Tumabao, an MS graduate scholar from a Philippine-Taiwan collaboration program.

The MOU signing was the result of an initial meeting between Taiwan Ministry of Education officials Mr. Chris Lou, Mr. Jacky Huang, Mr. Joselito Elvena and CSU Representative CEO Pacris in Baguio City, underscoring the commitment to fostering educational partnerships between Taiwan and CSU.
