Research Fellowship Dealing with the Past
The Robert Bosch Academy is a center for interdisciplinary, multilateral dialogue, and solutions-oriented cooperation on the global challenges of the 21st century. The Academy is an institution of the Robert Bosch Stiftung 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. 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.
The Research Fellowship targets scholars and experts who conduct research and work on specific issues relevant to the Robert Bosch Academy’s portfolio. They have the opportunity to actively engage with the Richard von Weizsäcker Fellows during their stay.
The Fellowship offers scholars and experts a six months research leave with a monthly stipend being provided which covers the fellow’s living expenses. A budget for travel and conferences can be made available. Preference will be given to those applicants who can demonstrate an established record relating to Dealing with the Past as scholar or practitioner with a broad international understanding beyond regional expertise. Specific areas or regions of knowledge as well as connected fields of interest are to be indicated nonetheless. The Fellow is expected to disseminate the results of their research not only through publications, but also through feeding into their future career after the end of the Fellowship.
