External Award: Schwarzman Scholars

April 23, 2018

Applications are now open for the Schwarzman Scholars Fellowship in Global Affairs at Tsinghua University in Beijing (China).

Scholars selected from around the world will pursue a fully-funded one-year Master's degree at Schwarzman College, a newly constructed, award-winning academic and residential building on Tsinghua’s campus.

All qualified candidates will have successfully completed their undergraduate degrees prior to enrollment and must be proficient in English.

They will hone their leadership skills through a curriculum designed by leading academics from around the globe and frequent interactions with distinguished lecturers and guest speakers. 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.

Applications for the 2019-2020 class will be open from April to September of 2018, with final selections made in November 2018.

Applicants who hold passports from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macao, regardless of where they attended university or reside, will apply between January 1st and May 31st, 2018. The selection process for Chinese nationals includes an online application and in-person interview at Tsinghua University in Beijing early July 2018. Candidates will be notified as soon as admissions decisions are reached, by October 1st, 2018 at the latest.
