NCCU Department of Diplomacy Delegation to the 2018 National Model United Nations (NMUN)


This will be one of the rare opportunities for you to grow and learn from such a trip with a meaningful and exciting conference that will gather thousands of students from major continents and an array of academic visits that will enhance your understanding of the world. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR PARTICIPATION!!





It has been a tradition since 2006 that every year the Dept. of Diplomacy  sends a delegation to attend the National Model United Nations (NMUN; 美國全國模擬聯合國會議) held in New York, where the headquarters of the U.N. is. In 2017, between March 18 and March 29, a Diplomacy delegation led by Prof. Kwei-Bo Huang (黃奎博) joined the 2017 NMUN and paid visits to various institutions and people in New York City.


The 2018 NMUN will be held on March 25-29, in New York City. In addition to NMUN that will allow you to meet delegates from all over the world and enter the General Assembly Hall of the U.N., some other activities will be arranged during your stay either in New York or in Washington, D.C. Possibly, the delegation is going to call upon Taipei Economic & Cultural Office (TECO) in New York or Taipei Economic & Cultural Representative Office (TECRO) in Washington, D.C., visit one or two universities and probably meet with their faculty members and students, as well as visit one or two think tanks or non-profit organizations in the field of international affairs. A tentative schedule of events for this delegation is between March 24 and April 4, 2018 – all delegates must fly on the same flights.


Qualifications for application are as below:

**Diplomacy-majored or –minored sophomore students or above (including double-majored undergraduates, and M.A. and Ph.D. students) who have completed at least 3 credits of “International Relations” or its equivalent.

**A good command of English

**A hardworking team player who can accustom herself/himself to living overseas

**Able to participate proactively (with few permitted leaves) in the training sessions (including those in the winter vacation)

**Applicants with experience in previous model conference(s) or overseas activities are preferred.


Application deadline is 9am, September 20 (Wed.), 2017. Those interested should email the following documents to Miss Yi-Hsuan Chen (陳怡萱助教) at dip50916@nccu.edu.tw (Department of Diplomacy’s office), or leave the hardcopy to the wood mailbox of Prof. Kwei-Bo Huang, located outside the Department’s office by the deadline to be specified below:

   **English C.V. (with Chinese name and personal contact information)

   **English biography (500 words at most) or class paper

   **Photocopy of the transcript of NCCU or previous college

   **Other favorable evidence demonstrating the applicant’s superior qualifications


The date/time for selection interviews, if any, and the other information will be emailed to the applicants after September 23, 2017. Expectedly, there will be 8 to 16 delegates to NMUN 2018 and the other activities in the U.S.


Those recruited must participate proactively, hopefully fully, in the training sessions (including those in the winter vacation) and pass the evaluation to be qualified to represent the Dept. of Diplomacy to the 2018 NMUN. Partially funded by certain domestic agents or individuals, each student delegate will pay for her/his travel and commuting expenses, registration fees, visa fees, accommodation (including meals), and any self-incurred expense. Beginning from October of this year, students will be grouped and guided to solicit some funding from the University, government agencies and/or corporations.
