Why are we running this project?

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program aims to familiarize highly accomplished American professionals with the political, economic, and cultural environment of Germany and the European Union by gaining a first-hand professional and personal experience. Through this Fellowship Program, the Bosch Stiftung aims to foster transatlantic relations in the long term.

What are our goals?

The Bosch Fellowship strives to motivate Fellows to actively engage in transatlantic relations after their participation in the program. Fellows are expected to take on leadership positions in politics, administration, business, the non-profit sector or in the media in the United States.

How does the project work?

The Bosch Fellows spend up to 11 months in Germany. They receive language training, participate in a series of professional seminars on German and European issues, and usually complete two practical phases in the public and/or private sector related to transatlantic issues. The Fellows are selected on a yearly basis in an highly competitive application process. After a preliminary selection, up to 35 applicants are invited to interviews with a German-American selection committee. Up to 15 fellows are selected.
