[ Stipendien | Grants ]

The Robert Bosch Foundation, together with the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe, the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, the Bernard van Leer Foundation, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the German Federal Foundation for the Environment announced the second call for applications of the International Fellowship Programme for CEE Foundations and NGOs.
This programme aims to strengthen civil society in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and international cooperation of NGOs by means of fellowship.
The principal objectives of the program have been as follows:
  1. To give CEE foundations and NGO staff the opportunity to develop their professional skills with an international and practical orientation,
  2. To support civil society in CEE by improving the management competences of staff members,
  3. To trigger or deepen contacts and cooperation between non-profit institutions in CEE and Western Europe.

After the first round in early 2005, the second round will take place in spring 2006, bringing fellows from Central and Eastern Europe to foundations and NGOs in Germany, the United Kingdom and other pre-2004 EU member states. The fellowships are offered for young leaders and senior managers of foundations and NGOs located in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. They will last between three and twelve weeks, allowing the fellows to work intensively on focus topics defined by themselves in agreement with the host institutions. The fellowships are framed by an introductory and a final seminar, and fellows can receive further financial support for additional
training, alongside with reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs etc.

All individual candidates have to apply until 7th November for the 2006 round.

The programme schedule can be individually adapted to the needs of the fellows and the sending and host institutions involved. The foundations funding the IFP put a strong emphasis on quality standards, starting with a transparent matching process and a thorough preparation well ahead of the fellowship.

Foundations and NGOs interested in hosting a fellow from Central and Eastern Europe are welcome to contact the Robert Bosch Foundation to learn more about what it means to participate in the programme. Candidates may also suggest particular host institutions. By the same token, host institutions may propose fellows of their choice, who have to compete with
the other candidates on the same conditions.
