“Ivana Thomas, a senior at Hampton University, was awarded the Schwarzman Scholarship, the newest and most ambitious international scholarship of the 21st century.
Founded and largely funded by American billionaire Stephen A. Schwarzman, the new international scholarship recognizes academic excellence, leadership accomplishment as well as promise. Schwarzman endowed the scholarship with $100 million of his own, and then raised an additional $200 million to help fund the scholarship in perpetuity. As a Schwarzman Scholar, Thomas will pursue, all expenses paid, a one-year Master’s at Schwarzman College of Tsinghua University, in Beijing, China.”
