Robert Bosch
Fellowships to Germany

As the countries of the world become more interdependent, the Robert Bosch Foundation recognizes 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.

The 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 2003 through May 2004. Applications are available online: Applications, complete with all requisite documentation, must be submitted by October 15, 2002 to:
