About Schwarzman Scholars Program
The program is a one-year, fully-funded master’s program at Tsinghua University in Beijing, designed to create a global community of future leaders who will help China and the rest of the world understand each other better.
The Schwarzman Scholars Program is the first scholarship designed to address the 21st century’s geopolitical landscape. In any sector, the success of future leaders around the world depends upon an understanding of China’s role in global trends.
