The Robert Bosch Foundation and Cultural Vistas annually invite US professionals 40 years or younger (with 5+ years relevant work experience in their proposed field of work in Germany) to apply by November 1, 2017 for the Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program  which begins in September. The Program seeks to foster a community of future transatlantic leaders. Fifteen Fellows will complete a 9- to 12-month professional development program consisting of one or two high-level work phases in major German institutions and a traveling, European-wide seminar series. Typically, at least five of the competitively chosen Bosch Fellows are from the field of Journalism/Mass Communications. The Bosch Foundation places fellows at major German news publications and broadcast media outlets, including Berliner Zeitung, Der Tagesspiegel, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, Deutsche Welle, n-tv, and ZDF. Includes stipend and compensation package. No German language skills are required at time of application; intensive pre-fellowship language training is provided.
