European Union – Latin America and the Caribbean Foundation (EU-LAC Foundation) Internship Program 2018
The EU-LAC Foundation offers internships four cycles a year to university students who are citizens of the European Union (EU), Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)- for a maximum of three months, giving them the opportunity to strengthen knowledge on the bi-regional Strategic Partnership EU-LAC and their first experience in a work environment within a bi-regional organisation.
The interns will give support to our Foundation professional team in their work processes and daily activities, which will afford them the opportunity to make relevant experiences in assistance with the carrying out of activities related to projects; research; proofreading and translation of documents; updating of specific sections of the Foundation’s website and social networks; organisation of events; maintenance of the in-house library, among other activities
All the students must cover the travel expenses to reach Hamburg as well as taking care of all visa processes and any other requirement related to the relocation. Once the intern has been selected, we will provide relevant information on accommodation and tips while living in Hamburg.
Interns will receive a monthly stipendium of 450€ to contribute to the living expenses related to housing, diets and local transport. The payment will be done according to the amount of days worked during the month. Therefore, could be the case that you start working later or end earlier in the current month, thus the payment will be less than 450€.
The EU-LAC Foundation is an equal opportunity employer.
