The Global Governance Futures—Robert Bosch Foundation Multilateral Dialogues program is now accepting applications for its fellowship program. This program brings together promising young professionals from a variety of industries—academic, civil, governmental, non-governmental, private, etc—to plan ahead for the year 2030 in planning solutions to key global challenges. This program will invite twenty-seven fellows from Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa, and the United States to focus on futures of global order, migration, refugee crises, and the role of cities in global governance.
The program will consist of four dialogue sessions of five to eight days each, that will take place in Washington DC, New Delhi, Sao Paulo, and Paris-Berlin. Exact dates of each session will be announced closer to the session. Between sessions, each fellow will be expected to contribute an average of eight hours each to advance the writing of the final working group essay.
At each session, fellows will engage in riveting discussions within their working groups. They will meet with experts, policymakers and business leaders from each host country. They will also receive training in methodology and engage in problem-solving sessions to determine possible solutions to global challenges. Fellows will publish the results of their studies in a series of products including presentations, essays, commentaries, podcasts, and interviews.
To apply, applicants must be citizens of Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa, or the united States. They should have at least three years of professional experience and demonstrate a strong commitment and interest in contributing to solving global challenges. Fellows should also be prepared to interact with the developing GGF alumni community and to promote GGF beyond the duration of their fellowships.
In addition, fellows should have a proven track record of making a difference in their communities, organizations, or companies. They should have exceptional academic abilities and a strong command of spoken and written English.
Applications should include a two-page CV that includes personal details, educational history, scholarships, work experience, training, language skills, and references.
