Since 2003, the MOE of Taiwan has been utilizing its existing educational and school resources for the nurturing of talented young people, especially in the areas of art and design. Through the promotion of the ''MOE's Program in Human Resource Development for Colleges of Art and Design, the ''MOE Scholarship Programs for Overseas Study in Art and Design'' and the ''MOE Award Incentive Program for Encouraging University/College Students to participate in International Art and Design Contests'', talented individuals have been given valuable opportunities to further develop their areas of exceptional interests and creativity.
 
Since 2010, the ''Taiwan International Student Design Competition'' is held after the ''Taiwan international Design Competition–the Student Section'' which happened in 2008 & 2009. The competition integrates the competitive edges of MOE art and design talent fostering programs. By hosting international student design competitions, ''Taiwan International Design Competition-the Student Section'' additionally encourages art and design students to participate in world-wide contests which can utilise media and advertisements to promote Taiwan. The program allows international judges or panelists and award winners to advertise the successes of Taiwan's art and design education programs.
