Ambassador Branstad welcomes the 2018 Schwarzman Scholars to Tsinghua University, including one of the U.S. Embassy’s former Marine security guards! These bright young minds competed to be included in the prestigious one-year Master’s program, a scholarship for young leaders from around the world. Ambassador Branstad, pictured along with scholarship founder and CEO Steve Schwarzman and Tsinghua University’s President Qiu Yong, encouraged the scholars to ask questions, challenge their assumptions, and to learn more about China for the betterment of our global society. We wish them the best of luck in their studies this year!
