  • Scholarship Description
  • Designed to prepare the next generation of global leaders, Schwarzman Scholars is the first scholarship created to respond to the geopolitical landscape of the 21st Century. Whether in politics, business or science, the success of future leaders around the world will depend on an understanding of China's role in global trends.

    Enrolling the inaugural class next year, the program will give the world's best and brightest students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through a one-year master's degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing - one of China's most prestigious universities.

    Students will live and study together on the campus of Schwarzman College, a newly-built, state-of-the-art facility, where all classes will be taught in English. Students will pursue degrees in one of three disciplines:

    -Public Policy
    -Economics and Business
    -International Studies

    Students will spend a year immersed in an international community of thinkers, innovators and senior leaders in business, politics, and society. In an environment of intellectual engagement, professional development, and cultural exchange, they will learn from one another and pursue their academic disciplines while building their leadership capacities. This experience will expand students' understanding of the world and create a growing network of global leaders for the future.

I am a ordinary person, and my life is pretty is insipid too. But, that's not what I desire. Fortunately, I am a senior in high school, and I have chance to change my boring life. The first step is entering a better college, but the financial condition blocks my way. Therefore, I really need to win this scholarship for the first step of my hopeful future.

Harvard students and alumni will testify in support of Harvard during the admissions trial this week, defending its "race-conscious admissions policy" against claims that it discriminates against Asian-American applicants.
