• Calling for Logo Design Competition



To promote openness and quality in Taiwan’s higher education, the Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan (FICHET) is hosting a lecture series entitled OPEN WORLD LECTURES @ FICHET. Starting this year, FICHET will be inviting outstanding foreigners from all walks of life in Taiwan to deliver lectures and share their experience of studying in Taiwan, along with inspiring and insightful stories to cultivate renewed interest in global learning mobility and thereby shorten distance between Taiwan and the rest of the world. To this end, FICHET is organizing a competition to design the logo of the lecture series, and is soliciting designs that evoke triumph over obstacles, fearlessness in the face of distance and adversity, and the courage and determination to change the world.
