Academy Robert Bosch Fellowship (Russia and Eurasia)

Academy Robert Bosch Fellowship

Chatham House, in partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung, hosts fellows from the six countries of the Eastern Partnership and Russia.

The fellowship offers an opportunity for the next generation of scholars 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. The fellowship is aimed at future leaders, researchers and opinion-makers in the early stages of their careers.

The fellows spend nine months working at Chatham House with the Russia and Eurasia Programme team. During this time they will conduct a research project of their own design relating to the politics, economies and/or societies of the post-Soviet region. In the course of the fellowship, the scholars will conduct research trips to the region and also spend time at the German Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin. The fellowships are part of Chatham House’s Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs.
