Cultural Vistas

Cultural Vistas offers an array of personalized and enriching professional internship and training programs in Germany and Switzerland. The Cultural Vistas Internship Program in Germany provides an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable international work skills, improve German language abilities, and experience German life and culture firsthand.

Internship placements are available in a variety of fields, including, but not limited to business, engineering, finance, tourism, IT, media/communications, international relations, the nonprofit sector, German studies, and economics.

Most internships are 3 to 12 months in length and have flexible start dates. Many internships are paid and scholarships are available to qualified participants who receive unpaid internships. Participants will receive a scholarship application following acceptance to the program. A limited number of language course stipends are also available for those who qualify.


  • Students, international and U.S., enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities
  • At least two years of university level studies in the field of your major
  • Two years of post-secondary instruction in German or the equivalent (extra language training is available, if needed)
  • Practical experience in your target internship field (summer employment, prior internship, lab position, etc.) does not need to be extensive, but is preferred. The more experience you have, the more desirable you are to a potential host company.

To apply, request an application from the Cultural Vistas website.
