From the website:
The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program is a distinguished transatlantic initiative that each year offers twenty accomplished young Americans the opportunity to complete a comprehensive 9-to-12 month professional development program in Germany.
Bosch Fellows participate in an intensive German language training program (as needed), complete two customized work phases at leading German institutions in the public and private sectors, and meet with leaders across Germany and Europe while traveling on three professional seminar programs.
Fellows are recruited from business administration, journalism, law, public policy and closely related fields. No German language skills are required at the time of application, however, a strong willingness and commitment to learn the language are essential.
The program is fully funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, one of the largest foundations in Germany, with the goal of fostering a community of American leaders who have firsthand experience in the political, economic and cultural environment of Germany and the European Union.
