About the Program

The Luksic Fellowship of the Schwarzman Scholars program is an annual funding designation for one Chilean or Latin American candidate for the Master’s program at Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University. This program was created to respond to the international landscape of the 21st century, under the belief that the success of future leaders around the world depends upon an understanding of China’s role in global trends.

Schwarzman Scholars supports up to 200 Scholars annually from the U.S., China, and around the world to study a one-year Master’s in Global Affairs at Beijing’s Tsinghua University — ranked first in Asia as an indispensable base for China’s political, business, and technological leadership. Candidates chosen for this highly selective program live in Beijing for a year of study and cultural immersion.

All participants receive a full funding package that includes: tuition & fees, room & board, an in-country study tour, travel to and from Beijing, health insurance, and a stipend for personal expenses. The admissions process, which opened for the first time in 2015 to outstanding success, is run exclusively by Schwarzman College.

Applicants are evaluated on three key factors: demonstrated leadership, intellect, and exemplary character & integrity. Additionally, eligible candidates must:

  • Have completed their undergraduate degree (in any subject area) before the start of the program (August of 2023);
  • Be between the age of 18 and 28 (and must not have turned 29 before the beginning of the program, in August 2023); and
  • Be proficient in English.*

*More details about the eligibility requirements can be found here.

Interested individuals must apply directly to Schwarzman Scholars. The application cycle for the Class of 2024 opened on 13th April 2022 and will run until 20th September 2022. Candidates selected during this cycle will participate in the program from August 2023 until July 2024. For more information on this program, please visit the Schwarzman Scholars website.
