Call for Applications: Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowships

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program has fostered a community of more than 500 transatlantic leaders since its inception in 1984. Beginning with the 2014-15 program year, the 31st year of this initiative, a revitalized Bosch Fellowship will offer additional flexibility for American professionals looking to gain high-level, practical experience in Germany and expand their networks in Europe.

The three core components of the Bosch Fellowship remain the same: customized work phases, discussions with key figures in Germany and Europe through a series of traveling seminars, and intensive German language training. However, the program now has a broader range of professional fields, options for program duration, as well as updated eligibility requirements. By opening up this unique opportunity to include more mid-career professionals from a wider variety of backgrounds, the Bosch Fellowship endeavors to extend its reach and create even deeper ties within the transatlantic sphere.

Fellows are chosen from the fields of business administration, cultural management (ex. museum, theater, orchestra), journalism, law, non-profit, public policy, and urban planning. For more information, email bosch@culturalvistas.org or call 212.497.3527. The application deadline is November 1, 2013.
