1) Objective

The Robert Bosch Foundation is one of the major German Foundations associated with a private company and has managed the philanthropic bequest of company founder Robert Bosch for over 50 years. Their international funding aims to support those projects that serve to facilitate conflict transformation in conflict (and post-conflict) societies in different regions. The Robert Bosch also pursues its aims in a nonpartisan and independent manner. Their projects and programs tackle social challenges in order to develop solutions and bring about change.

Their international program areas of support are: (1) health (mainly focused on Germany and the Bosch health campus); (2) education (including social development, pre-school and day care); and (3) global issues (promoting peace and stability to alleviate human suffering including climate change, democracy, migration, inequality and peace building).

2) Eligibility

Eligible to receive grant funding are non-profit organisations and institutions whose projects align with the Foundation’s aims.

3) Location

They fund projects in Africa, America, Asia, Europe (with a focus on Eastern and Southeastern Europe, Turkey, Russia, North Africa, United States, China, Japan, and India).

4) Budget

They have an annual grant budget of around €149,000,000: the main share goes to health (app. 60%) followed by global issues and education. Since its establishment in 1964, the Robert Bosch Stiftung has spent around €2,2 billion on its charitable work.

5) Application

They only accept preliminary inquiries and do not accept any unsolicited applications. Applications can be submitted via their online application portal all year round. The first step is a project idea. If that is successful, a full project proposal can be submitted. In addition they offer various calls for proposals during the year on their website for special funding schemes.
