"Delia Friel ’20, Danny Li ’19 and Colleen O’Connor ’19 have been named as 2021 Schwarzman Scholars to study global affairs at Tsinghua University in Beijing..." according to The Dartmouth.

"...The Schwarzman scholarship funds a one-year master program of global affairs at the Schwarzman College of Tsinghua University, with courses ranging from leadership to global affairs to Chinese development. For the Class of 2021, 145 Schwarzman Scholars were selected from more than 4,700 applicants and includes students from 41 countries and 108 universities.

"Friel, a biomedical engineering major and Spanish minor, said that she is interested in studying how social policy can promote scientific research and health care services. She said that she looks forward to the Schwarzman scholarship program as an opportunity to continue learning after graduating from Dartmouth and building networks with peers and professors.

"'It will enable me to learn from multiple perspectives with people from different backgrounds,' Friel said. 'It will also help open me to jobs, companies or business sectors that I didn’t even know existed and partner me with Chinese counterparts throughout my career.'

"An engineering exchange program in Hong Kong Friel completed during her junior year sparked her interest in studying in China. She said that the program allowed her to explore how people can create technological solutions to global health issues applicable to middle- and low-income regions. ...

"...O’Connor, an Asian & Middle Eastern studies modified with economics major and human-centered design minor, currently works as an associate in EY-Parthenon. At Dartmouth, she was the undergraduate advisor at the Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network, co-president of Women in Business and a Stamps Scholar. She also graduated as salutatorian and a class marshal."
