The Schwarzman Scholars program, which provides full funding for students to pursue a master’s degree at China's Tsinghua University, has named its inaugural class of students. The 111 students were selected from more than 3,000 applicants and come from 32 countries and 75 universities. Nearly half (44 percent) come from the U.S., 21 percent come from China and 35 percent come from the rest of the world.
A list of the award winners, who will study public policy, economics and business, and international studies at the residential Schwarzman College on Tsinghua’s campus, is available here.
