Schwarzman Scholars applications open
The Secretariat is pleased to announce that application for the 2022-2023 class of Schwarzman Scholars is officially open to AUAP members. This has been made possible through the efforts of Dr. Jonathan Lembright, Regional Director of the International Institute of Education, based in Bangkok and a member of the AUAP Advisory Council. As the world’s geopolitical focus on China continues to intensify, our Scholars have a front-row seat to the importance that collaboration and mutual understanding play in tackling global challenges.
As a reminder, the program is open to candidates aged 18 to 28, regardless of nationality, who are proficient in English and have an undergraduate degree or its equivalent. Mandarin skills are not required for admission. Whether in politics, business, sciences, or the arts — successful applicants are young people who have already demonstrated both the ability to lead in their fields and a commitment to building understanding among people with differing perspectives.
To access the U.S./ Global application and learn more about application requirements, please visit the Schwarzman Scholars website. The U.S./Global application will close at 11:59PM EDT on September 21, 2021. The deadline for candidates who hold passports from Chinese mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao is May 20, 2021. The China application can be found here.
Applications will be reviewed by a distinguished team of readers from around the world. From there, more than 300 finalists will be invited to interview virtually in late October and early November. Selected candidates will be notified of their acceptance by mid-November 2021.
To give those interested in Schwarzman Scholars the opportunity to learn more about its selection process and unique elements of the Scholar experience while engaging with our Admissions officers, current Scholars, and alumni, they will be hosting webinars through the next several months leading up to the application deadline.
With all good wishes!
