Internship in the German Bundestag
The German Bundestag in collaboration with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin announces Open Call for Applications for its International Parliamentary Scholarships (IPS) scheme.
The IPS program is aimed at highly qualified young men and women who are interested in politics and who wish to play an active and responsible role in shaping the democratic future of their country. The German Bundestag, the German Parliament, offers young people the opportunity to get to know the German parliamentary system and political decision-making processes and to gain practical experience of parliamentary work during a 15-week work placement with a Member of the Bundestag. The scholarship-winners are chosen by the German Bundestag’s independent selection panel.
The participants will be introduced to the wide variety of tasks carried out in a Member’s office. For example, they may find themselves drafting speeches, articles and letters or doing preparatory work for plenary sittings.
The exchange programmes of the German Bundestag are conceived of as exciting ways of teaching young people about the significance of friendly cooperation based on shared political and cultural values.
Duration of the programme is from 1 March to 31 July 2017
