As the countries of the world become more interdependent, the Robert Bosch
Foundation recognizes the importance of familiarizing American
professionals and executives 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 will enable 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 will, in addition, contribute to the participants'
professional competence and expertise, and broaden their cultural horizons.
This nine-month work/study fellowship program enables 20 American
professionals between the ages of 23 and 34 to acquire a high-level, in-
depth understanding of the political, economic and cultural environment of
Germany and the European Union. From September 2004 to May 2005 the Fellows
will complete two executive-level internships -- the first in federal or
regional governmental institutions, and the second with private industry or
media outlets. A variety of seminars with top-level elected officials, as
well as leading representatives from industry and academia, in cities such
as Berlin, Munich, Strasbourg, and Brussels, supplement the internships.
Applicants must be U. S. Citizens who have a graduate degree and/or two
years of professional experience in one of the following fields: business
administration, economics, journalism/ mass communications, law, political
science and public affairs/public policy. German language is required at
the start of the program. If needed, intensive language training will be
provided prior to the start of the program.
Applications must be received by no later than October 15, 2003 for the
program beginning in September 2004. Application forms and instructions are
available for download at http://www.cdsintl.org/rbfpintro.html
