Émigré Memorial German Internship Program

Cultural Vistas is currently accepting applications for the Émigré Memorial German Internship Program - German State Parliaments (EMGIP).

This program provides an opportunity for U.S. and Canadian students to intern at one of the German State Parliaments (“Landtage”) across Germany’s 16 state capitals. This is a great opportunity for individuals hoping to pursue careers at a regional level of government, or who are interested in specific public policy issues such as the environment, education, migration, and healthcare. Participants gain practical work experience with a state parliament, utilize their German skills and experience German political culture firsthand. Participants in this program receive monthly stipends to ensure a total monthly salary of EUR 670 (U.S. citizens only).
