Join the Schwarzman Scholars at Schwarzman College, Tsinghua University for a one-day conference celebrating and showcasing the female leaders who are paving the way to parity.

What is Schwarzman Scholars?
Schwarzman Scholars, modeled after the Rhodes Scholarship, sends exceptional graduate students to study together for a one-year Master’s at a newly built college at Tsinghua University, one of the top institutions in China. The motivation for founding this program was based on Stephen Schwarzman’s belief that it is absolutely critical to foster a robust dialogue and a better understanding between China and other nations of the world. Schwarzman Scholars is designed to prepare future leaders for the challenges of the 21st century with a greater understanding of China’s emerging global role.
