DHBW-Mannheim. ECU has an exchange program with the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg (DHBW) in Mannheim. ECU Students with four semesters of German or the equivalent can study there for a year. Students spend the first semester studying at the DHBW in Mannheim, and the second semester is spent completing an internship at one of 2000 German firms with whom the DHBW routinely works. ECU students earn academic credit for their work abroad, and up to now, all internships have been paid! Want to know more? Check out this video made by two of our own students, Robert Hart and Erin Taylor, and then contact Prof. Twark (email@example.com) or Prof. Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org). (The video features cameos by other ECU students or graduates as well!) Great job, Robert and Erin!
The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a yearlong fellowship to study and intern in Germany, is open to applicants in all career fields, though preference is given to students in vocational, technical, engineering, business, agricultural, and scientific fields. Students traditionally underrepresented in study abroad opportunities are especially encouraged to apply.
The fellowship is funded by the US and German governments through a grant provided by the US Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961, as amended.
The CBYX program annually provides 75 participants with two months of intensive German language training, a semester of study at German University or University of Applied Sciences, a five-month internship with a German company in the participant’s career field, housing, transatlantic airfare, health insurance, and a monthly stipend for living expenses.
Prior German language knowledge is not required, though it is preferred. Applicants should have clear career goals and some relevant work experience in their career field, which may include summer, part-time, or internship work. Participants must be between the ages of 18-24, possess a high school diploma or equivalent, and be US citizens or permanent residents.
Interested applicants can apply online at www.CBYX.info. The application deadline for the 2013-2014 program is December 1, 2012.
The Baden-Württemberg STIPENDIUM for Vocationally Qualified People “Work Immersion Study Program” (WISP) is a summer fellowship program offered exclusively to college students in vocational fields and includes funding for one month of intensive German language study, a two-month internship with a German company, housing, transatlantic airfare, health insurance, and a €300 monthly stipend.
Please note that the eligibility criteria for WISP have changed. WISP is now open to students in vocational fields who have completed at least 4 semesters of study by the start of the program in June 2013. Applicants must be enrolled at a US college before and after the program and must have completed at least 1 semester of college-level German by the start of the program. Participants must be between the ages of 18-27 and be US citizens or permanent residents.
WISP is funded by the Baden-Württemberg STIPENDIUM and is administered by Cultural Vistas in cooperation with the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) and their partners. Interested applicants can find out more and apply online by visiting www.WispGermany.org.
The application deadline for both WISP and CBYX is December 1, 2012. We look forward to receiving applications from your students, and to answering any questions they may have!
RISE Internship in Science and Engineering from daad.org: "The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to announce that for summer 2013 we will again offer three internship programs: RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering), RISE professional and RISE worldwide.
RISE has established itself as an outstanding opportunity to combine serious research with a rewarding study-abroad experience. All three programs are targeted to students from the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, earth sciences (geology) and related disciplines. RISE undergrads have the opportunity to work on cutting edge research projects at top research institutions (e.g., Max-Planck-Institutes) and universities in Germany. Students are paired with German PhD students in a unique mentoring partnership to ensure immediate integration into hands-on lab work and a built-in social network with an excellent opportunity to develop new technical skills. RISE participants receive a scholarship to cover living expenses."
