Every year, up to 200 Schwarzman Scholars will represent the world’s next generation of leaders — high-caliber individuals with open minds and limitless potential — a network of leaders who will serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world.

Schwarzman Scholars will be selected on the basis of not only their academic aptitude and intellectual ability, but also their leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, ability to anticipate and act on emerging trends and opportunities, exemplary character, and desire to understand other cultures, perspectives and positions.

All qualified candidates will have successfully completed their undergraduate degrees prior to enrollment and must be proficient in English.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • Undergraduate degree or first degree from an accredited college or university or its equivalent. 
    Applicants who are currently enrolled in undergraduate degree programs must be on track to successfully complete all degree requirements before August 1 of their Schwarzman Scholars enrollment year. There are no requirements for a specific field of undergraduate study; all fields are welcome, but it is important for applicants, regardless of undergraduate major, to articulate how participating in Schwarzman Scholars will help develop their leadership potential within their field.
  • Age Requirement.
    Candidates must be at least 18 but not yet 29 years of age as of August 1 of their Schwarzman Scholars enrollment year.
  • English language proficiency. 
    Applicants must demonstrate strong English skills, as all teaching will be conducted in English. If the applicant’s native language is not English, official English proficiency test scores must be submitted with the application. This requirement is waived for applicants who studied at an undergraduate institution where the primary language of instruction was English for at least two years of the applicant’s academic program. The requirement will also be waived for applicants who have studied in English for two or more years at a Master’s degree level or higher. Acceptable test options are:

    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL PBT). Minimum score 600.
    • Internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT). Minimum score 100.
    • International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Minimum score 7.

For applicants using the China Application System, refer to guidelines on the Schwarzman College Admissions page.

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE NOT PART OF MINIMUM ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:
  • Marital status. Married applicants may apply and will be at no disadvantage in the application process. Spouses/partners may accompany Schwarzman Scholars to Beijing, but Scholars are expected to live in the dormitory and participate fully in the program like other students. Spouses/partners may not live in the dormitory, and no additional funding will be provided to support spouses/partners living off-campus.
  • There are no citizenship or nationality requirements.
  • Grade point average/class rank/pre-requisites. Academic excellence is a requirement for successful applicants, but there is no minimum GPA or class rank required to apply. Applicants are expected to have demonstrated excellence in their academic studies, and the most competitive candidates are among the top students in their graduating class. There are no course prerequisites for applicants to the program, although some individual classes at Tsinghua University may have prerequisites.

Schwarzman Scholars does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, veteran status, or disability unrelated to job or course of study requirements.

 

APPLICATION

A CALL FOR FUTURE LEADERS

Interested candidates participate in a rigorous and thorough selection process, designed to identify the most promising young leaders from around the world. Those selected will have demonstrated their potential to produce results within their own culture and context by inspiring and guiding groups and to not only benefit from but also contribute to the Schwarzman Scholars program. The process includes an online application and evaluation as well as in-person regional interview.

The application period for U.S and Global applicants is open between April 2019 and September 2019. The application will close at 11:59PM EDT on Thursday, September 26 for the class that will arrive in Beijing in August 2020.

Selections will be made in November 2019. Applicants with Chinese passports apply by May 2019, with selections made in September 2019.  Please review basic eligibility requirements via the link to the right.

REQUIRED FORMS AND RECORDS INCLUDE:

  • Online application
  • Resume (2 page maximum)
  • Transcripts/Academic Records
  • Essays (2)
  • Letters of Recommendation (3)
  • Video (optional)

 

We discourage applicants from submitting any supplemental materials that are not required, such as portfolios, writing samples, additional recommendations, etc. Such materials will not be shared with the Review Committee.

Applicants who hold passports or permanent resident cards from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macao, regardless of where they attended university or reside, will apply between January 1st and May 31, 2019 through the China application portal. If the applicant were to apply via the U.S./Global system with a Hong Kong permanent resident card, he or she runs the risk of losing the permanent resident card. The selection process for Chinese nationals shares the same principles as the U.S. and Global process and includes an online application and in-person interview at Tsinghua University in Beijing early July 2019. Candidates will be notified as soon as admissions decisions are reached, by October 1, 2019 at the latest.

Further detail is available in the Instructions to Applicants (link below) and in the Admissions Frequently Asked Questions page.

FIND CAMPUS CONTACTS

At many colleges and universities, the campus contact plays an advisory role, offering high-level strategic advice on a candidate’s application.Currently enrolled undergraduates should coordinate with their campus contact early in the application process. Some colleges and universities establish internal pre-application processes for their undergraduates and may even set early internal deadlines. If this is the case with your university, you should be sure to follow your university’s internal procedures to apply for Schwarzman Scholars. Candidates who do not plan to ask for help may still want to notify their campus contact that they are applying as a courtesy.
The directory below is designed to help undergraduates identify the contact at their institution. Applicants who cannot find their college or university in this database should contact the fellowships office or dean of students at their institution.

SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING

The students selected to become Schwarzman Scholars will receive a comprehensive scholarship. It will include:

  • Tuition Fees
  • Room and board
  • Travel to and from Beijing at the beginning and end of the academic year
  • An in-country study tour
  • Required course books and supplies
  • Health insurance
  • A stipend of $4,000 for personal expenses

Schwarzman Scholars will be the single largest philanthropic effort ever undertaken in China by largely international donors.
