Celebrating Duke Students

Three Duke Students Named Schwarzman Scholars

Seniors Justin Bryant of Johns Creek, Georgia, and Julian Keeley of New York, New York, and 2015 graduate David Robertson of Fairfax, Virginia, were named to the second class of Schwarzman Scholars, which provides for one year of study at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

“I’m thrilled that Duke has three Schwarzman Scholars this year,” said Duke University President Richard Brodhead.  “A deep understanding of China will be critical to future leaders, and I’m delighted that these three outstanding young people, who have contributed greatly to the Duke community, will have this exciting opportunity.”  Read the full Duke Today article here.
