Bosch Foundation Scholarship

For internships in Germany only. Must have a graduate degree and fluency or near-fluency in German.

The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program has fostered a community of more than 500 transatlantic leaders since its inception in 1984. Beginning with the 2014-15 program year, the 31st year of this initiative, a revitalized Bosch Fellowship will offer additional flexibility for American professionals looking to gain high-level, practical experience in Germany and expand their networks in Europe.

The three core components of the Bosch Fellowship remain the same:
customized work phases, discussions with key figures in Germany and Europe through a series of traveling seminars, and intensive German language training. However, the program now has a broader range of professional fields, options for program duration, as well as updated eligibility requirements. By opening up this unique opportunity to include more mid-career professionals from a wider variety of backgrounds, the Bosch Fellowship endeavors to extend its reach and create even deeper ties within the transatlantic sphere.

Fellows are chosen from the fields of business administration, cultural management (ex. museum, theater, orchestra), journalism, law, non-profit, public policy, and urban planning.

Fellows benefit from:
• One or two high-level work phases at leading institutions in Germany
• Traveling seminar series covering issues of German, European and
transatlantic concern
• Up to five months of German language training
• Monthly stipend of EUR 3.000 (tax-free in Germany) starting in September;
monthly summer stipend of EUR 1.000 + free accommodations during July and August
• Accommodation and travel (U.S. points only) to Washington, D.C.
orientation program
• Financial support for accompanying spouse & children
• Flights to and from Germany
• Membership in the Robert Bosch Foundation Alumni Association (RBFAA)

• Minimum five years of relevant, full-time work experience in target
fellowship field (excluding internships)

There are a few special programs that may extend to constituencies beyond that.

DAAD's primary goal is to facilitate transatlantic mobility to Germany for US and Canadian scholars, therefore Germany must be a component of your intended academic travel.

UGA Graduate Dean's Award for International Study

This an International Award made to a UGA Study Abroad Program.

Purpose: To cover a study abroad program’s loss of tuition revenue, making it viable for more UGA graduate students on assistantship to study abroad.

Source: This award is generously funded by the Graduate School under the direction of Dean Maureen Grasso.

Note: Because UGA graduate assistants do not pay tuition for coursework (other than a $25 matriculation fee) and because UGA study abroad programs are often dependent on the tuition revenue generated by the credit hours in order to have the budget “make,” in the past, UGA study abroad programs often simply could not accept students on assistantship. This award provides funds to the program in place of tuition, thereby allowing more study abroad programs to accept graduate assistants and more UGA graduate students to study abroad. As a result, selected students do not receive any funds directly, and the award does not apply to non-UGA programs. Recipients must still pay the regular program fee just as do other graduate students and undergraduates; the program cannot discount or reduce the student's program fees as a result of this award.

Amount of award: An amount equal to either 3 or 6 hours’ tuition, depending on the number of hours for which the student will enroll

How paid: From the Graduate School restricted account, to be paid directly to the study abroad program, on behalf of an individual student

Deadline: March 3rd, 2014 for 2014 Maymester or Summer programs (please send all documents to Dr. Kasee Clifton Laster, Office of International Education, 1324 South Lumpkin Street).
