Schwarzman Scholars is a highly-selective, fully-funded scholarship program, based at the distinguished Tsinghua University in Beijing, designed to ensure that the next generation of business, political and civil society leaders around the world can effectively serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world. The program aims to achieve this by (1) recruiting promising young leaders from around the world, people who have the ambition and talent to take on executive roles in government, civil society, or business and who have a commitment to building understanding among people with differing perspectives; (2) educating them about China's global role via a one-year Master's in global affairs at Tsinghua and (3) linking them to senior mentors in their field in China and to their peers among China's rising young leaders.

Applications for the 2019-2020 class open April 2018, with selections made in November 2018. (Applicants with Chinese passports apply by May 2018, with selections made in September 2018.) Scholars will hone their leadership skills through a curriculum designed by leading academics from around the globe and frequent interactions with distinguished guest lectures. Additionally, Scholars will spend considerable time outside the classroom developing firsthand exposure to China and its people through thematic study tours, a mentoring program, and internships with key employers in Beijing. All classes will be taught in English, and students will have the opportunity to study Mandarin. Schwarzman Scholars will recruit an internationally diverse cohort each year, composed of people who have the ambition and talent to take on executive roles in government, civil society, or business and who have a commitment to building understanding among people with differing perspectives, welcoming applicants up to age 28.
