Purpose: 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 young American professionals to participate in an intensive work and study program in Germany. No German language skills are required at the time of the application.
