The Taiwan Culture Center of Greater Washington, D.C. area (TCC, officially Taiwan Culture Center, Inc.) is a non-profit organization that promotes international cultural exchange and cultural, educational, and charitable affairs involving Taiwanese Americans and others. (Download our brochure here.)
Currently, the Center facility located at 7509 Needwood Road, Derwood, MD 20855 is open from 10am to 3pm on each weekday and other time/date upon special request. All Taiwanese American or groups are encouraged to use the facility during these hours. Aside from seminars, annual meeting, open house and concert, the Center provides free medical consultation quarterly.
TCC sponsors the Taiwanese American Community Scholarship Award (TACSA) every year to enhance the relationship between Taiwanese American and the community where Taiwanese American lives and to provide encouragement and inspiration of young Americans to excel in leadership, community services as well as academic achievement. TACSA is open to all high school senior students from all ethnic groups. Since 2009 TCC also starts to sponsor Janet Chang Memorial Scholarship Award (JCMSA) for Taiwanese American medical school students.
Expanding the current "Taiwan Culture Center" is the immediate goal of many Taiwanese Americans in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. Being at the capital of the United States and the political capital of the world, it is an ideal location to effectively promote Taiwanese culture in the US as well as around the world. Furthermore, the ce nter helps in enhancing the international status of Taiwan. It is equally important that TCC center becomes the facility where Taiwanese Americans of the area can conduct meetings, social gatherings, and educational/charitable activities.
