Academy Robert Bosch Fellowships
Chatham House, in partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung, hosts fellows from among the countries of the Eastern Partnership and Russia.
These fellowships provide an opportunity for the next generation of leaders from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine to advance their knowledge of post-Soviet politics, develop research skills, contribute to Chatham House research and build links with policy and academic communities in the UK, Germany and the EU more broadly.
Two fellowships will run from February to October 2015, and a third will run from September 2015 to May 2016. Over the course of nine months the Academy aims to nurture the skills, knowledge and networks that fellows will need in their continuing career.
There are three elements to the fellowships: a) a personal project; b) integration into Chatham House work; and c) the leadership seminars. The fellows will receive a basic stipend.
Deadline for applications is Sunday 28 September 2014.
