Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program

To strengthen the ties of friendship and understanding between the United States and Germany, the Robert Bosch Stiftung sponsors and administers a Fellowship that offers an intensive professional development program in Germany. The Bosch Fellowship strives to advance transatlantic relations by broadening Fellows’ professional competence and expertise, as well as by expanding their cultural horizons. Up to 15 fellows will be selected. Through the program’s unique format of seminars and work phases, Bosch Fellows gain an insider’s understanding of the German professional world, make a wide variety of contacts with key decision makers, and become more familiar with German and European views on global issues.
