Internships

The EU-LAC Foundation offers internships for a period of maximum three months, spread accross four cycles a year, to university students who are citizens of the European Union (EU), Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), giving them the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the bi-regional Strategic Partnership EU-LAC and hands-on experience on the work of a dynamic bi-regional organisation.

The interns will assist the Foundation’s 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.

Remuneration:

Each intern will receive a monthly stipend of €450.00 towards his/her maintenance and transport costs in Hamburg. Payments will be made according to the number of days worked in the relevant month, meaning that if the internship contract begins or ends when the current month has already started, the payment received at the end of the relevant month will be lower than €450.00.

The EU-LAC Foundation is an equal opportunity employer.
