Cultural Vistas is pleased to announce the 13 emerging leaders of the 37th class of the Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program one of which is Colin Brush, formerly of Lenox Place and currently of Washington, District of Columbia.

Professional Experience: Artistic Administrator, Washington National Opera, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; Aptitude Consultant, Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation

Fellowship Field: Arts Administration

The latest cohort of Fellows have backgrounds in the fields of law, government, international security, urban and regional planning, cultural management, and the NGO sector, among others. Upon arriving in Germany, they will join a prestigious group of more than 600 young Americans who have completed the transatlantic journey as Bosch Fellows since the inaugural program in the summer of 1984. This 37th class also marks the final year of the Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program.

The program is fully funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, one of the largest foundations in Germany—which is committed to enhancing transatlantic relations in an effort to help create joint solutions to global problems.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program structure has been altered to a nine-month model, starting on October 1, 2020 and ending on June 30, 2021. After two months of intensive private language tutoring in their hometowns, the Fellows will take group language classes in Berlin in October. The Fellows will then participate in a series of three professional seminars beginning in December and complete one or two high-level practical assignments at leading German institutions starting in January 2021.

Each seminar will last 3 to 5 days and is designed to expose the fellows to an array of German and transatlantic issues, as well as enhance their leadership development. During the professional assignments, Fellows will work directly in their field of expertise alongside key decision-makers from Germany’s public and private sectors.
