Fellowships to Germany
the countries of the world become more interdependent, the Robert
Bosch Foundation recognized the importance of familiarizing American
professionals with the political, economic, and cultural environment
of Europe in general and of the Federal Republic of Germany in particular.
To further this goal and to strengthen the ties of friendship and
understanding between the United States and Germany, the Foundation
is sponsoring a Fellowship Program which enables young American
professionals to participate in an intensive work and study program
in Germany. Although a prime goal of this program is the advancement
of American-German/European relations, it, in addition, contributes
to the participants' professional competence and expertise, and
broadens their cultural horizons.
Robert Bosch Foundation Fellows receive internships in such key
German institutions as the Federal Government, the Federal Parliament,
headquarters of private corporations, mass communications, and other
governmental or business entities. They normally work at a high
executive level. The Foundation will make every reasonable effort
to secure positions for fellows related to their professional goals.
Candidates for the program are competitively chosen from the fields
of Business Administration, Economics, Journalism and Mass Communications,
Law, Political Science and Public Affairs/Public Policy. The program
runs from September to May.
