WEST POINT, N.Y. – Several U.S. Military Academy cadets have been selected to receive prestigious scholarships allowing for continued academic study following graduation and commissioning in May from the Schwarzman Scholar Program and the Marshall Foundation.
Each new cohort of Schwarzman Scholars joins a global network of the world’s most talented young leaders, helping to build stronger links between China and a rapidly changing world. This scholar experience is anchored in a rigorous and innovative Master of Global Affairs degree at Tsinghua University, one of the country’s leading universities.

The Marshall Scholar program is a postgraduate opportunity funded by the British government for intellectually distinguished young Americans to study abroad at a university in the United Kingdom, in any field of study. The goal of the program is to strengthen the relationship between the two countries for the good of mankind.
