Schwarzman Scholars Information Session, Tuesday, April 21st at 5PM at Harvard Hall, Room 201

Schwarzman Scholars, inspired by the Rhodes scholarship, is a program designed to help future leaders meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond by preparing them to better understand China’s culture, economy, governance and motivations.  Up to 200 Scholars chosen annually from around the world for this highly selective, fully-funded program will have an unrivaled opportunity to live in Beijing for a year of study and cultural immersion, attending lectures, traveling and developing first-hand exposure to China and its people.  Scholars will study for a one-year Masters degree in public policy, international relations, or economics and business at Tsinghua University, one of China’s most prestigious institutes of higher education with a 100 year history of strengthening ties between China and the rest of the world and a record of producing leaders such as President Xi Jinping, former President Hu Jintao, and former Premier Zhu Rongji.

I’m a student at the College, and a young scholar for Global Relations Forum, a think tank based in Istanbul, Turkey. The organization is looking to expand its Young Scholar and Academics Programs internationally by inviting students from all over the world to apply to their seminar programs for undergraduate and graduate students.

There will be an information session on April 20th at 6:30 pm on campus.

 I thought your students would be interested in this program: could you pass along the information?

2015 Amartya Sen Prize Contest: Call for Submissions

Academics Stand Against Poverty, the Yale Global Justice Program, and Global Financial Integrity invite submissions of original essays of ca. 7,000 to 9,000 words on the intelligent use of incentives toward curtailing corporations’ use of tax evasion and avoidance, abusive transfer pricing and all forms of illicit financial flows. All prizes are named in honor of Amartya Sen, whose work has shown how the rigor of economic thinking can be brought to bear on normative and practical questions of great human significance. For more details, please see our website.

The best entries will be presented at an international conference in the fall of 2015 at Yale University and subsequently published in a special issue of a prominent journal. In addition, at least two of the winning essays will receive a monetary award: a first prize of $5,000 and a second prize of $3,000. Professor Sen joined us last year for the conference presentations and hopes to do so again this year.

Entries can be e-mailed to Chelsea Papa at chels.papa@gmail.com by August 31, 2015. We ask that entries be anonymized to facilitate blind refereeing. Winners will be selected by an expert jury, whose decisions are final.
