Information Session with Schwarzman Scholars: Applications Open Until September!

The Luksic Foundation invites interested candidates to participate in a virtual information session about the international Schwarzman Scholars program. This session will feature a representative from the admissions team who will provide details about the opportunities and benefits of pursuing a Master’s in Global Affairs in Beijing, China. Applications are open until September 12, 2024.

The Schwarzman Scholars program offers a well-rounded educational experience each year at Schwarzman College, located at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, one of the most renowned academic institutions in the country. The Luksic Foundation provides annual financial support for a selected Chilean candidate to participate in this program, known as the “Luksic Scholarship in Schwarzman Scholars.”

Participants pursue a Master’s in Global Affairs, and in addition to classes, workshops, and mentorships, students also get the opportunity to interact with global leaders, cultural experts, and entrepreneurs. Schwarzman Scholars also provides Mandarin classes to allow candidates to better immerse themselves in Chinese culture and have a meaningful experience during their stay.

The Luksic Foundation, in collaboration with the Schwarzman Scholars team, has organized a virtual information session to provide firsthand details about the program, including application requirements, the selection process, and the benefits, which include full funding and living expense coverage.
