Elite Company

Jesse Cammerer ’14 is part of the inaugural class of Schwarzman Scholars—the Rhodes of China.

Jesse Caemmerer ’14 is one of the chosen few tasked with making the world a smaller place. Named to the inaugural class of Schwarzman Scholars for the master’s degree program at Tsinghua University in Beijing, Caemmerer will engage in an elite graduate curriculum that trains students to work in China’s expanding role in the world. This program was modeled after the Rhodes scholarship, with only 111 of 3,000+ applicants accepted. Caemmerer currently works in Singapore as a personal research analyst for Ambassador Barry Desker, chairman of the Singapore International Foundation. After studies at SCU, Caemmerer graduated at the top of his class at Nanyang Technological University, winning a Rotary Global Fellowship and earning his M.S. in strategic studies. Caemmerer says his goal is to earn a Ph.D. and pursue an academic career in U.S.–China relations with an emphasis on security policy.
