The Robert Bosch Stiftung is one of the major German foundations associated with a private company and has managed the philanthropic bequest of company founder Robert Bosch for more than 40 years.
The Foundation is divided into four areas to support and operate its aid program. In order to pursue the Foundation’s objectives, it promotes external projects and initiates its own projects for developing and running programs.
To respond to social challenges and develop new solutions are the key objectives of the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
One of the aims of the Robert Bosch Stiftung is to give journalists opportunity to conduct research abroad and thereby gain firsthand experience of central and eastern European countries they can then pass on to their readers and viewers.


Robert Bosch Foundation is looking for active journalists who want to go on location to learn, ask questions, dig deeper, and make discoveries in order to incorporate their findings into nuanced political or economic reporting that really gets to the heart of the issue. The Robert Bosch Foundation is supporting research projects carried out by print and online journalists for the purpose of preparation for publishing articles in Central and Eastern Europe and China, as well as research with the goal of publishing articles in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.


The grants cover the cost of travel and accommodation, communication, the purchase of research materials, fees for third parties (such as interpreters), as well as daily allowances.
The grants are provided for a maximum research period of three months.


The deadline for application is 15 October, 2012.
