Fully Funded German Bundestag International Parliamentary Scholarship 2018
Would you like to work for the German Parliament? If you are from Central, Eastern or South Eastern Europe, France, Israel, North America or the Arab region, then the International Parliamentary Scholarship (IPS) at the German Bundestag could give you the opportunity to experience how the Bundestag works over the course of five months, with three of these spent working in a Member’s office.
Each year, the German Bundestag, in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and the Technische Universität Berlin, offers around 120 scholarships to young university graduates from 42 countries. The programme runs each year from 1 March to 31 July. The patron of the programme is the President of the German Bundestag.
The programme aims to:
The IPS programme lasts a total of five months (1 March to 31 July) and involves a number of special events, seminars and a work placement with a Member of the German Bundestag. At the start of the programme, participants receive an introduction to the local academic life from the three Berlin universities, along with an insight into the parliamentary work from the Bundestag Administration.
Scholarship participants also receive an introduction to Germany’s political, economic and cultural life via seminars held by the political foundations.
The IPS is open to well-qualified and highly motivated young people who are open to new ideas, interested in politics, and wish to play an active and responsible role in shaping the democratic future of their country. Successful candidates will be chosen based on their professional, social, language and intercultural skills by an independent selection panel set up by the German Bundestag with the involvement of the Berlin universities.
