Schwarzman Scholarship Tsinghua University, China

Associate Director of Admissions:
As we navigate the path forward during this unprecedented period, there has never been a more important time to recruit and train the world’s future leaders. If the last few months have taught us anything, it is that we are all far more interconnected than we ever realized. Global challenges require global solutions and leaders who are well-informed and well-equipped to develop them. With a front row seat to global crisis leadership and practical opportunities to construct interdisciplinary solutions, Schwarzman Scholars are better positioned to succeed and more in demand around the world than ever before.
The Schwarzman Scholars Application is Live for the 2021-2022 class
Application period will close at 11:59PM on September 22, 2020.
We look forward to welcoming another outstanding group of talented young leaders from all corners of the world. We are truly proud of the resilience and creativity that the Schwarzman Scholars community has demonstrated over the past few months while adapting to ever-changing circumstances related to COVID-19. While prioritizing the health and safety of our entire community, our efforts have focused on keeping the current class connected and engaged. Our current cohort has quickly adapted to attending classes and participating in co-curricular programming virtually. They will graduate as planned, while building a once-in-a-lifetime network with each other, faculty, thought leaders, and alumni. In fact, when the current class graduates in June, Schwarzman Scholars will reach an important milestone: over 500 alumni worldwide!
The incoming fifth cohort set to start in August will most likely come together virtually for a period of time, due to the current challenges, before going to Schwarzman College. As a reminder, the program is open to candidates between the ages of 18 and 28 years old, regardless of nationality, who are proficient in English and have obtained an undergraduate degree or its equivalent. Mandarin skills are not required for admission. Whether in politics, business, sciences, or the arts, successful applicants are young people who have already begun to demonstrate the ability to lead, produce results in their fields, and a commitment to building understanding among people with differing perspectives.
Applications will be reviewed by a distinguished team of readers from around the world who will narrow the pool based on an extensive set of guidelines. More than 400 finalists will be invited to an in-person interview in Beijing, Singapore, London, or New York, and will be notified of their acceptance by mid-November 2020.
To give those interested in Schwarzman Scholars the opportunity to learn more about our selection process and unique elements of the Scholar experience while engaging with our Admissions officers, current Scholars, and alumni, we will be hosting webinars through the next several months leading up to the application deadline.
