Emigre Memorial German Internship Program - German State Parliaments (EMGIP)

 

Description

The Emigre Memorial German Internship Program - German State Parliaments (EMGIP) is a fellowship program that provides U.S. and Canadian students with internships at a German state parliament (Landtag). A limited number of applicants are selected every year to participate in this program, which was established to pay tribute to German Emigres who found refuge from a totalitarian regime. EMGIP has helped build lasting ties between the United States and Germany, especially since many program alumni have pursued careers that they first experienced through EMGIP. Internships afford students an excellent opportunity to gain government work experience, improve their advanced German language skills, and learn about German culture firsthand. This professional opportunity overseas is ideal for students planning on pursuing careers at a regional level of government in the United States or Canada, or who have an interest in a specific policy issue such as the environment, education, or healthcare. EMGIP runs three times a year (fall, spring, and early summer) for one to three months, depending on elections, holiday schedules and state office preferences.
