Robert Bosch Fellowship on South-Eastern Europe

Robert Bosch Fellowships enabled junior and senior scholars to spend six months at the IWM to pursue their research project while working in residence at the institute. 

The IWM accepted applications from countries of ex-communist South-Eastern Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia. Applications were accepted from researchers who were either residents of said countries, affiliated to a university or research institution in the region, or (independent of the applicant’s country of origin) who pursue research on South-Eastern Europe.

Presented below is a selection of fellowships. As this is a past program we are working through our archives to ensure that fellows and fellowships are represented accurately. If you were a fellow under this program, please do get in touch with us.

These Fellowships were kindly supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation, a charitable institution set up in accordance with the wishes of its founder Robert Bosch (1861-1942) a German industrialist, engineer, inventor and founder of Robert Bosch GmbH.
