Grambling State Begins an ROTC Student Exchange Program With a University in Taiwan

Grambling State University, the historically Black educational institution in Louisiana, has signed an agreement with Management College of National Defense University, a military academy located in Taoyuan City, Taiwan. The agreement establishes an ROTC Student Exchange Program. The goal is to have each institution send one or two students to the other institution annually for one to two semesters of study each year.

The Management College of National Defense University offers programs in business, law, and logistics. The primary targets for Grambling State are freshman and sophomore ROTC students, although the program will be open to all students.

“The opportunity for students from Grambling State University to study in Taiwan as well as students in Taiwan to study here in Louisiana is an amazing opportunity,” said Rick Gallot , president of Grambling State University. “We look forward to a very prosperous partnership, and I look forward to coming and visiting personally at some point in the very near future and would welcome the opportunity for them to visit us here. For Grambling students to have the opportunity to participate in this kind of program and study in Taiwan and to have their students come and study here is something we are and should be looking for in expanding opportunities for our students. We’re such a global society now — we’re all more connected than apart, so I think this is a tremendous opportunity for our students to get this exposure to travel and study abroad.”

The exchange students will not be charged tuition or room and board while studying abroad. But they will have to pay their own travel expenses.
