Internationales Parlaments-Stipendium

The German Bundestag invites you, in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, HumboldtUniversität Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin, to apply for an International Parliamentary Scholarship (IPS) to spend five months in Berlin starting in March and finishing at the end of July. The IPS program is aimed at highly qualified young men and women who will return home after the program with the determination to play an active and responsible role in shaping their countries’ democratic future.
