The Crossing Borders program provides international research grants for authors, film-makers and photographers who address current social issues and seek to reflect their impact on different cultures and societies through their work. The aim of the program is to support the creation of publications that refute commonly held stereotypes, inspire dialog and promote mutual understanding. Crossing Borders is a Robert Bosch Stiftung program, conducted in cooperation with Literarisches Colloquium Berlin.

Applicants from China (including Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao), India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam are welcome to apply for research grants in Germany.

Research grants are available for literary and essay prose works, poetry, photo-text volumes, children’s and young-adult literature, scripts for documentary and feature films, radio programs and multimedia productions. The grant size depends on the research duration with a maximum amount of € 10,000. A detailed calculation can easily be made with the aid of the online application form.

The application period ends on October 31, 2019.

Please note that this program will not be continued after 2020; this will be the last opportunity to apply.
