This webinar provides an overview of two prestigious postgraduate fellowships to China: The Schwarzman Scholars Program and the Yenching Academy of Peking University Fellowships.
The Schwarzman Scholars Program gives the world’s best and brightest students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through a one-year Master’s Degree in Global Affairs (taught in English) at Tsinghua University in Beijing – one of China’s most prestigious universities. Drawing on the best traditions of Tsinghua and top academic institutions around the world, the curriculum bridges the academic and professional worlds to educate students about leadership and about China's expanding role in the world.
The Yenching Academy of Peking University aims to build bridges between China and the rest of the world through an interdisciplinary master's program in China Studies. This initiative brings together young people who have demonstrated a talent for leadership and innovation. At Yenching, they are immersed in an intensive learning environment where they can explore China and its role in the world—past, present, and future. The Academy's goal is to shape new generations of global citizens with a nuanced understanding of China. Yenching Academy provides full fellowships to its scholars, and offers them a wide array of interdisciplinary courses on China within broadly defined fields of the humanities and social sciences. Working closely with their academic mentors, Yenching Scholars create their own study paths by choosing courses from six research areas.
LMU students are invited to learn more about these competitive programs, including an overview of the awards, eligibility requirements, and application timelines. Students of all majors are encouraged to attend.
