Mallie Prytherch G’19, an alumna of the Master of Public Administration Program in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, was named as a Schwarzman Scholar. She is Syracuse University’s second Schwarzman Scholar; the first, Kyle Rosenblum ’20 B.A. (PSt), was selected last year.
Prytherch is one of 154 scholars selected from more than 3,600 applicants from around the world. The Schwarzman Scholars Program was created in 2016 to respond to the geopolitical landscape of the 21st century. The program provides scholars the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and professional networks through a one-year master’s degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Schwarzman Scholars are chosen on the basis of leadership potential, strength of character and academic ability.
