Schwarzman Scholars, inspired by the Rhodes scholarship, is a program designed to help future leaders meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond by preparing them to better understand China’s culture, economy, governance and motivations. Up to 200 Scholars chosen annually from around the world for this highly selective, fully-funded program will have an unrivaled opportunity to live in Beijing for a year of study and cultural immersion, attending lectures, traveling and developing first-hand exposure to China and its people. Scholars will study for a one-year Masters degree in public policy, international relations, or economics and business at Tsinghua University, one of China’s most prestigious institutes of higher education with a 100 year history of strengthening ties between China and the rest of the world and a record of producing leaders such as President Xi Jinping, former President Hu Jintao, and former Premier Zhu Rongj.
We do welcome and encourage applications from young leaders in any field relevant to issue influenced by or relevant to China, so please attend the information session about the Schwarzman Scholarship next Wednesday February 11, 2015, from 4-5pm in the Mulberry Conference Room in the Wagner School of Public Service, 295 Lafayette St. (Catch the elevator to the 2nd floor, show your ID, and walk up the large stairs behind the front desk to the third floor.) Representatives from the Schwarzman Foundation will be on hand to give a short presentation (15 mins) followed by a 45 minute Q&A about applications. This event will not be taped or recorded and will not be repeated. However, we will attempt to live-stream if students request it.
