Hey Fitz,

Hope that pun blew you away! Storm Doris has well and truly hit Cambridge, and I keep looking out of the window to make sure it hasn't transported Fitz to Munchkinland and gotten us all embroiled in a quest to defeat the Wicked Witch of the West.

(Okay, I'll stop with the Wizard of Oz references now). 

Congratulations on making it through Week 5! Only three weeks left to go before Easter vacation (and then another four weeks until exam term...I mean, what?)

If you're still feeling a little blue, or if you suddenly find yourself with absolutely no work after a crazy week 5, there's plenty going on around the university this week. Events include concerts, celidhs, and conferences. And if you just can't wait until summer vacation, check out the 'opportunities' section for information on how to travel around the world like these goats, and perhaps get paid for it. There's also a chance to win champagne (under miscellaneous)! This is clearly the best Billy Bulletin ever!

Schwarzman Scholars is a highly-selective, fully-funded scholarship program, based at the distinguished Tsinghua University in Beijing, designed to ensure that the next generation of business, political and civil society leaders around the world can effectively serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world.  We aim to achieve this by (1) recruiting promising young leaders from around the world, people who have the ambition and talent to take on executive roles in government, civil society or business  (2) educate them about China's global role via a one-year Master's in global affairs at Tsinghua and (3) link them to senior mentors in their field in China and to their peers among China's rising young leaders.  It is an unparalleled introduction to China and its role in the world. 

A Schwarzman Scholar should demonstrate extraordinary leadership potential, the ability to anticipate paradigm changes, strong intellectual capacity and exemplary character.

Leadership: the ability to conceptualize, articulate and implement new approaches to existing conditions, with determination, energy and adaptability to drive change despite obstacles. A leader must have the ability to inspire others to help make change happen. Leadership can be demonstrated through many contexts and fields, political, social, business, the arts, and beyond.
Intellect: achievements demonstrated through outstanding performance in academic endeavours.  
Character: personal values and integrity that inspire trust among others 
Schwarzman Scholars aims to build a professionally diverse cohort each year, and welcomes undergraduates/graduates and young professionals from any field who can articulate how the experience in China will help develop their skills as leaders. We expect the largest number of applications from fields and professions that are heavily influenced by trends in China, including but certainly not limited to economics, political science, sociology, history, business, public policy, international studies, environmental studies, energy, health, climate, urban studies, trade and others.
Applications for 2018/2019 will open in April 2017. For more information on the program please visit our website, watch our video introduction, read this profile in the New York Times, and/or download our full brochure
