Praktikum in einem FES-Auslandsbüro

Praktika in den Auslandsbüros der Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

In ihren weltweit arbeitenden Auslandsbüros bietet die Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung die Durchführung von Praktika an. Dies gilt für Pflichtpraktika und freiwillige Praktika, die im Rahmen von Studium und Ausbildung geleistet werden, und genauso für freiwillige Orientierungspraktika bis zu drei Monaten außerhalb einer Ausbildung oder eines Studiums.

Richten Sie Ihre Bewerbungen bitte an das FES-Auslandsbüro, in dem Sie gern ein Praktikum machen möchten. Ihr Ansprech- und Vertragspartner für die Durchführung des Praktikums und alle damit verbundenen Fragen ist stets das jeweilige FES-Auslandsbüro und nicht die Vertretung der FES in Deutschland.

Die FES zahlt eine Aufwandsentschädigung für die Dauer des Praktikums in einem der Auslandsbüros, Näheres hierzu finden Sie hier (ganz unten):

Weitere Aufwendungen wie Flugkosten, Visagebühren, Tropentauglichkeitsuntersuchung u.a.m. werden von der FES nicht übernommen. Diese Kosten sowie auch die Kosten für Versicherungen (Auslandskranken-, Unfall- und Haftpflichtversicherung) müssen durch den/die Praktikant_in selbst getragen werden.

General information on FES scholarships

The Scholarship Programme of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

The promotion of young talent has been one of the founding principles of the FES. The first scholarships were awarded to particularly talented young individuals from a working class milieu who were taking an active part in the young democracy of the Weimar Republic.

For the FES therefore, it is not only the applicants' academic achievement but also their social and political involvement and their personal attitudes that play an important part in the selection process.

Who is eligible?

The FES supports students from public or state-approved universities and from polytechnical colleges. It supports all academic subjects and postgraduate programmes. It is also possible for non-German students to apply for the scholarship programme. They, however, need to study in Germany at the time of application.

In order to find out more about the application process and who to contact please visit the FES Scholarship Department website.
