The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship invites 15 American professionals to spend a year in Germany focused on language learning and professional development.

As a 2016-2017 fellow, I worked with two media outlets in Berlin — weekly newspaper Die Zeit and international broadcaster Deutsche Welle — while participating in program seminars in Stuttgart, Brussels and Leipzig. 

My project through the foundation looks at a new generation of German officer questioning long-held Bundeswehr principles — principles created in response to the abuses of the Nazi-era Wehrmacht.
