The MediaTek Foundation
In December 2001, the MediaTek Foundation was founded to promote science and technology education in Taiwan. By leveraging its core competitive advantages to develop educational technology, it hopes to put the concept of “taking from the community and giving back to society” into practice as MediaTek is dedicated to making the world a more inclusive place with its technology and capacity.
Education is of vital importance to the continued growth of any country and the cornerstone of its development. A successful program in science and technology education is at the base of Taiwan's economic miracle; however, to ensure the continued growth of Taiwan's competitiveness, this education must be made more universal and comprehensive. With this concept in mind, the MediaTek Foundation is actively involved in the promotion of future scientific education.
At the secondary school level, the MediaTek Foundation is working to strengthen basic science education curriculum. At the collegiate level, it works to integrate the educational fields of liberal arts and management in order to train well-rounded scientists and tech personnel.
At the graduate level, the Foundation encourages and assists students in working towards their doctoral degree, and the strengthening of a coherent and consistent domestic science and technology educational system.
The Foundation also offers scholarships for students to study in top-notch international institutions in hopes that recent contributions to the field of science can find their way to Taiwan. Furthermore, it assists professors and students to present papers at international academic forums and hold academic lectures as a way to elevate the visibility Taiwan's academic standards in the international arena.
In addition to cultivating human resources, the MediaTek Foundation also participates proactively in a wide range of social and charitable projects. Through promotion of cultural activities; its work in making education more universal; and the balanced distribution of resources for local communities, disadvantages families, community support groups, and knowledge exchange activities, it is encouraging the growth of Taiwan's cultural scene and ensuring that its cultural capital can play a positive force in the lives of everyone.
