Schwarzman Scholars Programme

Schwarzman Scholars Programme for Young Leaders to study in China 2020-2021(Fully-funded)

Deadline: September 30, 2019

Apply for the Schwarzman Scholars Programme 2020-2021. Every year, up to 200 Schwarzman Scholars will represent the world’s next generation of leaders — high-caliber individuals with open minds and limitless potential — a network of leaders who will serve as bridges between China and the rest of the world.
Schwarzman Scholars will be selected on the basis of not only their academic aptitude and intellectual ability, but also their leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, ability to anticipate and act on emerging trends and opportunities, exemplary character, and desire to understand other cultures, perspectives and positions.
Battlegrounds is not only an extremely popular and entertaining game, it also has a strong competitive aspect and the potential to become an eSports, and is also of great interest to the betting industry.
Indeed, to win it is necessary to have not only a deep understanding of the game, but also good mechanical shooting skills. And although the project has not even left the Early Access stage, there is a lot of talk about its potential cyber future. People want not only to play, but also to root for their favorite players and to bet on the Battlegrounds.
The developers have clearly heard this desire of fans and are considering the possibility of seriously engaging in eSports. Already announced the holding of the first major LAN tournament PUBG. The event will be organized by the ESL industry giant, and the tournament itself will be held at the major Gamescon exhibition in Cologne, Germany. The tournament will be attended by 80 players, and the starting prize fund is $ 350,000. If you are interested in betting on this tournament, then you can better familiarize yourself with the betting process on our website visit site.
Here it should be noted that PUBG is a non-standard project for eSports, where team battles or one-on-one matches usually dominate. However, no one doubts that the interest in the project is huge and the tournament will cause a great response in the community.
It should be assumed that this tournament will be the impetus for the development of the project as e-sports, and at the same time, people will begin to actively bid.
