• Applicants who are currently enrolled in undergraduate degree programs must be on track to successfully complete all degree requirements by August 1 of their enrollment year. There are no requirements for a specific field of undergraduate study; all fields are welcome, but it will be important for applicants, regardless of undergraduate major, to articulate how participating in Schwarzman Scholars will help develop their leadership potential within their field.
Candidates must be at least 18 but not yet 29 years of age as of August 1 of their Schwarzman Scholars enrollment year.
Applicants must demonstrate strong English skills, as all teaching will be conducted in English. If the applicant’s native language is not English, official English proficiency test scores must be submitted with the application. This requirement is waived for applicants who studied at an undergraduate institution where the primary language of instruction was English for at least two years of the applicant’s academic program. The requirement will also be waived for applicants who have studied in English for two or more years at a Master’s degree level or higher.Acceptable test options are:
• Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL PBT)
• Internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT)
• International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
Many Chinese applicants to Schwarzman Scholars have had difficulty registering at English language test sites in Chinese Mainland due to high demand. To ensure that talented applicants are not excluded, we will allow applicants from China to temporarily submit results from CET-6 or TEM-4/8, using the "Comment" field in the online application. If they are a finalist, their offer of admission will be conditional, and they will still be required to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score above the minimum requirements for Schwarzman Scholars before March 1 of their Schwarzman Scholars enrollment year.. This requirement is waived for applicants who graduated from an undergraduate institution where the primary language of instruction was English for at least two years of the applicant’s academic program.
