Joanna Nichols Visiting Scholars

The Joanna Nichols Visiting Scholar and Joanna Nichols Artist in Residence programs bring relevant, distinguished, and stimulating figures to TAS each year to share singular insights and experiences with students.

Over the years, experts in their fields have spent up to one month at TAS, sharing a wealth of knowledge with students. From intergalactic explorations to historical journeys into Asia’s past, visiting scholars' and artists’ expertise has strengthened the educational opportunities for everyone at Taipei American School.

The programs are the result of the continuing, extraordinary generosity and vision of a former parent, who has previously honored the memory of his late wife, Joanna Nichols, with tremendous support for the library project and valuable professional development awards for TAS faculty.
