The Global Policy and Development Department of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Berlin offers continuous 3-month-internships to interested students.
The following time-slots are offered:
Please note that internships are only possible in the time-slots noted above. Applications that arrive after the deadline cannot be taken into account. Confirmations of receipt will not be sent.
Please address the application (via email) to GPol.Praktikum(at)fes.de. We would like to ask all applicants to provide us with a single, compressed PDF file for download, instead of large email attachments. Applicants will be notified about 2 months after the application deadline. An allowance will be paid for the duration of the internship.
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung offers internships at their internationally operating foreign offices. This applies to mandatory internships, voluntary internships during the course of studies and vocational training, as well as to voluntary orientation internships (generally up to 3 months during studies or vocational training).
Please address your application to the FES foreign office at which you would like to undertake your internship. Your contact and (contractual) partner is the respective foreign office and not the FES representation in Germany. An overview over the FES foreign offices as well as information on the possible duration of the internships can be found here: www.fes.de/de/standorte/fes-international.
As a general rule, the FES will pay a monthly allowance. Further information is available at www.fes.de/de/standorte/fes-international.
The FES will not bear further costs incurred, such as flights, visa fees, evaluation of tropical fitness, and insurances. These expenses must be carried by the applicant.
