Join Dean Linda Dunleavy and a representative from the Schwarzman Scholars program to learn about the opportunity to study in China after graduation.

Schwarzman Scholars Information Session, Monday, April 17 from 5:00-6:30pm in the Petteruti Lounge, Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center.

Schwarzman Scholars, inspired by the Rhodes scholarship, is a program designed to help future leaders meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond by preparing them to better understand China´s culture, economy, governance and motivations.

Up to 200 Scholars chosen annually from around the world for this highly selective, fully-funded program will have an unrivaled opportunity to live in Beijing for a year of study and cultural immersion, attending lectures, traveling and developing first-hand exposure to China and its people. Scholars will study for a one-year Masters degree in public policy, international relations, or economics and business at Tsinghua University, one of China´s most prestigious institutes of higher education with a 100 year history of strengthening ties between China and the rest of the world and a record of producing leaders such as President Xi Jinping, former President Hu Jintao, and former Premier Zhu Rongj.

A Schwarzman Scholar should demonstrate extraordinary leadership potential, the ability to anticipate paradigm changes, strong intellectual capacity and exemplary character.

� Leadership: the ability to conceptualize, articulate and implement new approaches to existing conditions, with determination, energy and adaptability to drive change despite obstacles. A leader must have the ability to inspire others to help make change happen. Leadership can be demonstrated through many contexts and fields, political, social, business, the arts, and beyond.

� Intellect: achievements demonstrated through outstanding performance in academic endeavors.

� Character: personal values and integrity that inspire trust among others
