Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program


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 and of the Federal Republic of Germany. To further this goal, and to strengthen the ties of friendship and understanding between the United States and Germany, the foundation sponsors a fellowship program that 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 also contributes to the participants' professional competence and expertise, and broadens their cultural horizons.


U.S. citizens age 23-34 with a graduate degree or equivalent training in business administration, journalism, law, public policy, international relations, or a closely related field. No German language skills are required, but the willingness and commitment to participate in language training based on the results of an evaluation at the selection meeting is essential.

Award Amount

One year of executive-level internship in German government or private sector
