Would you like to work at the German Parliament?

The German Bundestag invites you, in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt- Universität Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin, to apply for an International Parliamentary Scholarship (IPS) to spend five months in Berlin.

The IPS program is aimed at highly qualified young men and women who will return home after the program with the determination to play an active and responsible role in shaping their countries’ democratic future. 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 selection interviews are held in the United States.
