21st Century Scwartzman Scholars Program
http://schwarzmanscholars.org/program
http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/dealbook/2013/04/22/schwarzmans-scholarship-in-china/
A U.S. private equity tycoon announced Sunday the establishment of a $300 million endowed scholarship program in China for students from around the world, and billed it as a rival to the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship. Stephen A. Schwarzman, founder of the private equity firm Blackstone, said he would give $100 million as a personal gift and raise another $200 million to endow the Schwarzman Scholars program at Beijing's Tsinghua University. It will be the largest philanthropic gift with foreign money in China's history, according to the tycoon and the university. Forty-five percent of the students will hail from the United States, another 20 percent will come from China with the remaining students representing Europe, South Korea, Japan, and India. The 21st century Schwartzman Endowment emulates the world famous Rhodes Scholarship program established in 1902. The program is supposed to launch in 2016.
Breaking news: Applications for the yearlong Schwarzman Scholars program at Tsinghua University became available Wednesday morning, April 15, 2015, in the wake of a major real-estate acquisition deal for the financial firm. Mr. Schwarzman's $100-million gift to start create the program led to his 23rd place ranking on The Chronicle's 2014 list of America's most generous donors. According to the Times article, he has raised $333-million for the program and plans to raise his fundraising target to $400-million.

Fellows will be chosen on the basis of their promise as scientific investigators. Many factors will be assessed. The most influential will be the applicant's summary of his or her proposed thesis research, and the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the student. Also important will be the recommendation letters, the training environment, and the applicant's previous research and other accomplishments.

The award amount will depend on the candidate's financial need but in general Fellowships do not cover all expenses and candidates are encouraged to seek complementary sources of funding.

    If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current.
