Blackstone LaunchPad to host webinar viewing on Schwarzman Scholars program

Case Western Reserve University’s Blackstone LaunchPad will host a viewing of an introductory webinar for the Schwarzman Scholars program on Tuesday, May 5, at 4 p.m. in Thwing Center, Room 101.

The Schwarzman Scholars program, inspired by the Rhodes scholarship, is 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 evolving role in the world.

Up to 200 scholars—chosen annually from around the world for the highly selective, fully funded program—will have the opportunity to live in Beijing for a year of study and cultural immersion, attending lectures, traveling and developing first-hand exposure to China, its people and a global group of promising leaders.

Scholars will study for a one-year master’s 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.
