Scholarship Events and Deadlines

Plan to attend this workshop designed to help you get started on creating a competitive Schwarzman Scholarship application. We will provide writing strategies and allow time for you to begin developing your application.  

The Schwarzman Scholarship Program is holding its inaugural competition and is seeking qualified applicants from Illinois. The Schwarzman provides a year of study leading to a Master's degree in Public Policy, Economics and Business, or International Studies at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. All courses are taught in English. Seniors, graduate or professional students, and graduates under the age of 28 are eligible to apply. U.S. and non-U.S. citizens are eligible.  Our application workshop is targeted to juniors, seniors, and graduate or professional students, and will provide a brief overview of the program, including selection criteria, application process, and the benefits provided to the selected scholars.  We will then focus on the application itself, explaining the different components, and helping participants to start penning ideas.  This is a great opportunity to develop and get feedback on your ideas for your personal statement, leadership essay, and other written portions of the application. The priority deadline for the Schwarzman Scholarship is June 1, 2017, and the required campus deadline is August 23, 2017, so now is the time to learn about the program and get answers to your questions!
