Schwarzman Scholars Program

The Schwarzman Scholars Program was created to increase understanding of China’s role in the geopolitical landscape of the 21st century. Scholars participate in a one-year Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing to pursue public policy, economics and business, or international studies. The award covers:

  • Tuition fees
  • Room and board at a state-of-the-art facility
  • Travel to and from Beijing
  • An in-country study tour
  • Required course books and supplies
  • Lenovo laptop and smartphone
  • Health insurance
  • A personal stipend of $3500

Applicants must be at least 18 but not yet 29 years of age. Completion of an undergraduate degree is required before the start of the scholarship. All majors may apply, but applicants must make clear how their participation in Schwarzman Scholars will help develop their leadership potential within their field. While applicants of all citizenships may apply, proficiency in the English language must be demonstrated. There is no minimum GPA requirement.
