  1. 1. “In the 21st century, China is no longer an elective course.” S T E P H E N A . S C H WA R Z M A N schwarzman scholars
  2. 2. American and European interests dominated the 20th century. But China’s emergence as a global political and economic power center is changing the dynamics of the world. It will be up to a new generation to overcome differences and lead with confidence and sensitivity. It will require a broader knowledge of the policies, economies and cultures that are shifting the balance. And, more than ever, it will require deeper personal experience, exposure and relationships. Tomorrow’s leaders must not simply shed old biases. They must also have the understanding to see opportunities for mutual advancement, and to strike a healthy balance between cooperation and competition. Schwarzman Scholars is creating a historic new path for the best and brightest in politics, business, technology and the social sciences to guide us towards greater prosperity and progress in the future. the mission LEADERSHIP for a CROSS-CULTURAL WORLD 2 3 schwarzman scholars

  6. 6. Designed to inspire the next generation of global leaders, Schwarzman Scholars is the most significant program of its kind since the Rhodes Trust was founded in 1902. With a $300 million commitment, it will also be the single largest philanthropic effort ever undertaken in China by largely foreign donors. The 200 scholars chosen annually for this highly selective program will work towards a one-year 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, Schwarzman Scholars will be selected based on their academic credentials, extracurricular interests and leadership potential. During their stay, scholars will be granted access to a privileged range of cultural and academic experiences, from travel to all corners of China to mentorships with leaders of industry, to exchanges with global leaders and experts in their chosen disciplines. They will also spend their year immersed in the local culture and social life—before classes begin, a summer orientation will provide opportunities to learn Chinese, explore Beijing and meet fellow students and faculty.

The centrally located residential and academic building is designed to encourage a constant interchange of ideas and culture among students, faculty and visiting leaders. Breaking ground in 2013, it will welcome the first class of Scholars in June 2016. Established in 1911, Tsinghua University is at the forefront of major endeavors in China, from social and economic, to political and scientific. It is dedicated to academic excellence and integrity, and the interaction between Chinese and Western cultures. Notable graduates include the current and former Presidents of China, Xi Jinping and Hu Jintao; the former Chairman of the National People’s Congress, Wu Bangguo; the former Premier, Zhu Rongji; and the former First Vice Premier, Huang Ju.

Starting with our first class in 2016, Schwarzman Scholars will set a new standard for international study, giving talented students a better understanding of the new geopolitical landscape and preparing them to make a positive impact. The program will inspire constructive engagement among new generations of leaders, who will be profoundly influenced by the bonds, knowledge and exposure they gain in China. Each student will spend the year focusing on one of four academic disciplines: public policy, economics and business, international relations and, in the future, engineering. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with academic leaders from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Oxford, Duke and other prestigious universities around the world. Taught in English, all courses are designed specifically for this elite class of students, drawing on some of Tsinghua University’s most accomplished professors as well as visiting scholars from the world’s schools.
