MAGES Students Win Three Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowships
Lauren Edwards, Steven Keil, and Elizabeth Livengood (all MAGES ’12) were awarded Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowships for 2012-2013. The prestigious award is for young rising American professionals with an interest in Germany and transatlantic relations. Over 600 applicants compete for the 20 annual awards made by the Foundation.
The intensive ten-month fellowship program includes internships in the public and private sectors as well as three seminars in other parts of Europe with major European decision-makers.
This is not the first time MAGES students have won multiple Bosch Fellowships. In 2011 Melis Tusiray and Jessica Lewis (both MAGES ’11) were also awarded the prestigious fellowship for 2011-12. The Foundation chose its first class of fellows in 1984. Today the Robert Bosch Alumni Association, founded in 1985, has over 460 members, including Brent Goff (MAGES ’99) who held a Bosch in 1999-2000 and is a member of the Bosch XVI Class.
