Five students with Stanford affiliations, including three seniors and two alumni, have won 2019 Schwarzman Scholarships for graduate study at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

They are among the 142 scholars from 39 countries who were named 2019 Schwarzman Scholars, which accepted its first class in 2016. The new class will begin master’s degree studies in August 2018.

The scholarship program is designed to ensure that the next generation of business, political and civil society leaders can effectively serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world.
