About the Scholarship
The Schwarzman Scholars program provides an international group of students the opportunity to spend a year at a new and specially-designed college at Beijing's Tsinghua University to complete a one-year master's degree in Public Policy, Economics, and Business or International Relations. Courses will be taught in English by professors from Tsinghua University as well as academics from institutions abroad. Visiting entrepreneurs, policy makers and thought leaders from around the world will complement regular classes. Each student will have the opportunity to work closely with a mentor from the Chinese business, academic, and government communities.
Students admitted to the program will receive a full scholarship covering tuition, fees, room and board; travel to and from Beijing at the beginning and end of the academic year; in-country excursion travel; academic books and supplies; laptop and smartphone; health insurance; and a modest personal stipend.
