Princeton seniors Ella Cheng and Tyler Rudolph and alumni Lucas Briger, Anastasya Lloyd-Damnjanovic and Yung Yung (Rosy) Yang have been named inaugural Schwarzman Scholars. The Schwarzman Scholarship covers the cost of graduate study and living toward a one-year master's program at Tsinghua University in Beijing. 

For its first class, 111 scholars were selected from around the world. The scholars will study economics and business, international studies, and public policy. The courses will be taught in English by professors from Tsinghua as well as visiting scholars and will start in July. Cultural immersion and travel also are key elements of the scholarship. Blackstone co-founder Stephen Schwarzman founded the program and the scholars will be housed on the newly constructed Schwarzman College on the Tsinghua campus.
