            have been employed in a full-time position in Taiwan at a junior
            college, tertiary level educational institution level, or an
            academic research institute for at least five years.
 
Article 3   The Academic Awards are awarded annually. A maximum total of 
            thirteen people each year may receive an Academic Award. The 
            number available in each different disciplinary category is 
            stipulated in Article 6, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph 1. There
            is an annual quota of two recipients in the Humanities and Arts
            category, two recipients in the Social Sciences category, and 
            three recipients in each of the other disciplinary categories.
            The deadline for submitting recommendations for the Academic 
            Awards will be announced by the Ministry.
 
Article 4   The referees of the Academic Award candidates shall satisfy one
            of the following eligibility requirements:
            1. Be the president of a public or private junior college, or of
               a higher level educational institution;
            2. Be the person in charge of a public or private academic 
               research institute;
            3. Be an academician of Academia Sinica;
            4. Be one of five professors in an associated academic field. 
 
Article 5  The referees of the candidates for an Academic Award shall complete
           their reference using the prescribed format and submit it, together
           with relevant publications and documents, to the Ministry before
           the deadline. A candidate who is employed as a full-time teacher at 
           a junior college or at a university or a fulltime research fellow
           at an academic research institute shall first be reviewed by the 
           junior college, university, or institute where they are employed,
           which will then submit a report to the Ministry. Each junior 
           college, university, or institute may recommend up to three 
           candidates in each category, and the selection shall be made by the
           Ministry.
 
Article 6  1.The Ministry shall select the Academic Award recipients in 
             accordance with the following procedure:
             1. A separate Review Board will be set up for each of five 
                categories, based on different academic fields: the
                Humanities and Arts; Social Science; Mathematics and Natural
                Science; Biology, and Medical and Agricultural Science; and 
                Engineering and Applied Science. From nine to eleven 
                prestigious scholars and experts shall be appointed to be 
                members of each Review Board. The Standing Committee of the 
                Ministry of Education Academic Review Committee of the
                (hereunder abbreviated to “the Academic Review Committee”)
                shall designate the convener of each Review Board.
             2. Each Review Board shall conduct the first review after 
                undertaking a detailed examination of the academic research
                and teaching performance of each of the recommended candidates,
                and fully discussing and analyzing each.
             3. Each Review Board shall forward all the material pertaining to
                each candidate who has passed the first review to three or 
                four scholars or experts for further evaluation, after which
                it will conduct its second review. Each Review Board will then
                give their recommendations of candidates for an Academic Award
                to the Standing Committee.
             4. The Standing Committee shall review and discuss the results 
                of each evaluation of each of the recommended candidates
                referred to in the preceding subparagraph, and then draw up
                and submit a list of candidates for an Academic Award to a 
                meeting of the Academic Review Committee to discuss and 
                deliberate over.
             5. The decisions shall be made with the agreement of two thirds
                of the members present, after discussion and deliberation at 
                a meeting of the Academic Review Committee attended by at
                least half of its members. The Academic Award recipients are 
                selected based on the number of votes received each of by the
                candidates.
             6. If any Academic Award remains without being conferred on a
                candidate after the selection procedure, a further ballot 
                may be cast if a majority of the members present at the 
                meeting of the Academic Review Committee members attended 
                by at least half of its members agree. If the second ballot
                still fails to result in anyone receiving the number of votes 
                stipulated in the preceding subparagraph, the Academic Award 
                in question shall not be conferred that year.
             If a member of the Academic Review Committee is one of the
             current recommended candidates for an Academic Award, that 
             person shall withdraw from participating in all associated 
             review and ballot-casting procedures.
 
Article 7   Recipients of an Academic Award shall be given a certificate of 
            honor and a grant. 
            A person who has previously been conferred an Academic Award is 
            not permitted to be recommended again. 
 
Article 7-1 If an Academic Award recipient was involved in a case of 
            violation of academic ethics, before the Academic Award was
            conferred on them, that would have adversely affected the decision 
            to select them, if any material presented during their selection 
            procedure contained false or incorrect details, the Ministry shall 
            revoke their eligibility to receive an Academic Award and require 
            the person to return the certificate of honor and grant money they
            were paid in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 1 of the 
            preceding article.
            If an Academic Award recipient becomes involved in a case of 
            violation of academic ethics and the circumstances are serious, 
            the Ministry shall deem the person ineligible to have been awarded
            an Academic Award and require the person to return the certificate
            of honor and grant money that they were paid in accordance with 
            the provisions of Paragraph 1 of the preceding article.
            The procedures referred to in the preceding paragraph for being
            deemed ineligible to receive an Academic Award and for 
            cancellation of an Academic Award already conferred are as
            follows:
            1. The Ministry shall organize an investigation team if a
               candidate is reported or found to have been involved in a 
               case of the kind referred to in either of the two preceding 
               paragraphs.
            2. After the investigation team makes its professional judgement,
               it shall draw up and submit a written report of its 
               investigation to a meeting of the Academic Review Committee
               for discussion and consideration.
            3. The meeting of the Academic Review Committee that discusses 
               and considers the findings shall be attended by at least half
               of its members and a decision motion will be passed if two
               thirds of the members present agree.
 
Article 8   These Regulations shall take effect on the date of promulgation.
