Madeline Bauer joined the National Committee after spending a year in China as a Schwarzman Scholar. During her one-year fellowship—a major component of the National Committee-Schwarzman Scholars Partnership—she is developing and executing bi-annual seminars for Schwarzman College alumni to continue their engagement in China-related issues. Ms. Bauer also organizes activities for current Schwarzman Scholars to participate in various National Committee programs taking place in China, and develops new alumni programs to accommodate the needs of a growing Schwarzman alumni network.

Originally from Boston, MA, Ms. Bauer graduated from Yale University in 2017 with a degree in history, concentrating in politics, law, and government. At Yale, she served as vice president of the Yale College Council and editor for the student publication, China Hands. Her interest in China began as a college freshman and intensified after participating in the Princeton in Beijing intensive language program. She spent her summers cultivating her interest in government and foreign policy through working for U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and at the U.S. Department of State in the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs' Office of Economic Policy. At Schwarzman College, Ms. Bauer served as a member of the student government and worked to organize a conference celebrating female leadership. In her free time, Madeline enjoys long distance running and playing the violin.
