German International Parliamentary Scholarship Program (IPS)

by treasurer@gccmb.ca on Monday, July 24, 2017 9:06 PM

The German Embassy is thrilled to announce that the German Parliament (Bundestag) has decided to include Canada into its International Parliamentary Scholarship Program (IPS). Young Canadians up to the age of 30 will have the chance to do a five months long internship (March to July) at the German Bundestag. The internship is accompanied by various seminars, workshops and excursions on all aspects of German up-to-date domestic and foreign policies, the federalist structure of the country, as well as its past and present.


If you are a Canadian citizen under the age of 30 with profound skills and interest in German politics and language (minimum level B2, as defined in the Common European Framework of Languages), this might be a great opportunity for you. You can find more information by following this link (https://www.bundestag.de/europa_internationales/internat_austausch/ips/kanada/513256, unfortunately only in German).
