Schwarzman Scholars Program for Young Leaders: 2018/19 Applications

Applications open April 2017
GLOBAL DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS, ROBERT GARRIS, VISITING CAMBRIDGE, FEBRUARY 28th, 3:30pm, Bentley Room, Pitt Building.
Schwarzman Scholars is a highly-selective, fully-funded scholarship program, based at the distinguished Tsinghua University in Beijing, designed to ensure that the next generation of business, political and civil society leaders around the world can effectively serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world.  We aim to achieve this by (1) recruiting promising young leaders from around the world, people who have the ambition and talent to take on executive roles in government, civil society or business  (2) educate them about China’s global role via a one-year Master’s in global affairs at Tsinghua and (3) link them to senior mentors in their field in China and to their peers among China’s rising young leaders.  It is an unparalleled introduction to China and its role in the world. 
 
A Schwarzman Scholar should demonstrate extraordinary leadership potential, the ability to anticipate paradigm changes, strong intellectual capacity and exemplary character.
 
·        Leadership: the ability to conceptualize, articulate and implement new approaches to existing conditions, with determination, energy and adaptability to drive change despite obstacles. A leader must have the ability to inspire others to help make change happen. Leadership can be demonstrated through many contexts and fields, political, social, business, the arts, and beyond.
·        Intellect: achievements demonstrated through outstanding performance in academic endeavours. 
·        Character: personal values and integrity that inspire trust among others
Schwarzman Scholars aims to build a professionally diverse cohort each year, and welcomes undergraduates/graduates and young professionals from any field who can articulate how the experience in China will help develop their skills as leaders. We expect the largest number of applications from fields and professions that are heavily influenced by trends in China, including but certainly not limited to economics, political science, sociology, history, business, public policy, international studies, environmental studies, energy, health, climate, urban studies, trade and others.
Applications for 2018/2019 will open in April 2017. For more information on the program please visit our website.

Summer opportunity with a children’s charity

Lauriston Lights targets high-ability 11 year-old children from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. This demographic receives very little specific support from the government, so it’s up to voluntary organisations to help them hone their abilities. Over a two-week summer camp, with your help, these children find the confidence and skills needed to let them thrive in secondary school and beyond. 

The camps are entirely operated by current university undergraduates, on a voluntary basis, and approximately 40-50 mentors are needed to volunteer this August in London and Oxford. The final deadline is Friday 24th March.

More info can be found HERE, a promotional video can be found HERE and the application form can be found HERE

1.2 billion people live
on less than £1 a day.

 

You can help change this.

 

Join in on the Live Below
the Line challenge to spend £1 on food and drink for 5 days from March
6th-10th. Live Below the Line raises vital funds and attention for the 1.2
billion people who live on £1 a day, every day – not just for food and drink,
but for everything. By taking the Live Below the Line challenge, it will
change the way you understand and think about extreme poverty. It gets people
talking and creates passionate people, willing and able to make a difference
for those who need it most. We will be raising money for Tearfund, a charity
working to help people lift their lives out of destitution.

 

Check out the facebook event here for more information

 

There will be some communal meals
