|EMGIP - Bundestag Internship|
|EMGIP (Émigré Memorial German Internship Program) offers internship opportunities for U.S. and Canadian students in the German parliament, the Bundestag. The internships are two months long and we try to match the position with the student’s interests and experiences. Interns will be placed within the Verwaltung, preferably with a Sekretariat working for their preferred Ausschuss. In addition to contributing to the respective offices, interns have the opportunity to study legislative and administrative procedures in the German parliament.
Please see also EMGIP Landtag in the German State Parliaments administered by Cultural Vistas.
Terms of Award
|The German Bundestag suggests that you choose a two month period between September and mid-December 2016 when the Bundestag is in session. Placements during the spring are rare, but sometimes possible from May 1st, 2016. Since the spring session ends in late June, placements typically end in early July for the summer break. The Bundestag is not in session in July and August. In order to receive an optimal placement for your internship you should clearly state your particular interests in the essay.
Short-listed candidates will be interviewed in German.
The following documentation is required:
How much German do I need to know?
German language fluency is important for you to be able to carry out the assignments during your internship. Your writing skills in German must be equally excellent.
