About Schwarzman Scholars      

Designed to prepare young leaders to serve as a bridge between China and the rest of the world, Schwarzman Scholars is the most significant program of its kind since the Rhodes Trust was founded in 1902.

The 200 scholars chosen annually for this highly selective program will work towards a Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing—one of China’s most prestigious universities. As individuals who want to have a positive impact on the world, the Stephen A. Schwarzman Scholars will be selected based on their academic credentials and demonstrated leadership accomplishments.

During their stay, students will be given access to a privileged range of cultural and academic experiences, from travel to all corners of China to exchanges with global leaders and mentorship with experts in their chosen discipline. They will also spend their year immersed in the local economy and social life, for example: before classes begin, a summer orientation will provide opportunities to explore Beijing and begin building life-long relationships with young leaders from around the world.
