Germany is reknown for its profund education system The Robert Bosch Academy is a core center for interdisciplinary, multilateral dialog, and solutions-oriented cooperation on the global challenges of the 21st century. It offers a variety of scholarships for international students.

For young executives

The Academy is headquartered at its Berlin Representative Office in the heart of the capital’s government district Berlin-Mitte. It provides distinguished decision-makers and experts from around the world with the opportunity to spend a sabbatical in Berlin and to participate in public life in the capital and beyond. While in residence, the Fellows engage in a wide range of activities, allowing them to establish close working relations with institutions and individuals related to their fields of interest. In addition to the traditional foreign policy and security issues, the Robert Bosch Academy focuses on policy challenges that require or benefit from comparative bilateral or multilateral approaches, such as education, demographic change, public health, migration and asylum, among others.

For women

Fast Track, the top-flight, intensive education program is offering 20 outstanding female postdocs an unrivaled opportunity. Working together with you, we will develop your skills and abilities in a series of intensive seminars over several days, smoothing your path to a leadership position in research. Take advantage of this opportunity to exchange experiences and network with leading scientists, politicians, business and media representatives, and receive financial support for activities to advance your career. Are you a top-flight scientist with international experience, ready to step up and maximize your potential? Then this program is just right for you.

For geriatrics

The aim of the Research and Study Program (“Forschungskolleg“) is to train doctors for senior positions in academic geriatrics. Graduates of the Program should have an extensive clinical and scientific understanding of geriatrics. They should be ready to take up relevant posts or reach the appropriate qualification level within a short space of time.

The program is aimed at doctors with at least two years’ clinical experience who can convincingly show they envisage pursuing a career in geriatrics. They should also aim to reach a senior post-doctoral academic position. Their training as a medical specialist (or continuing training in clinical geriatrics) should in principle be completed within the fellowship period. The Robert Bosch Stiftung cooperates with seven clinical partners in Germany and Switzerland. Fellows are employed by one of these centers for the entire funding period.

Participants are supported from eighth grade on their way to obtaining their Abitur (German secondary school diploma qualifying for university admission).

The program aims to provide educational opportunity to talented students and helps them realize their full potential.
