Supporting careers, broadening horizons: USA experience gives your CV the edge

German-American Internship Programme 2018

Do you want to move to New York or Los Angeles, or would you prefer to go somewhere else in the country? On behalf of the German Government, in 2018 the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is again offering young Germans the chance to gain initial work experience in the USA through the German-American Internship Programme. Young professionals and graduates in various sectors as well as experts in agriculture, viticulture and horticulture who are not yet 27 can spend up to a year on a job-related internship and gain an insight into life and work on the other side of the Atlantic.

In cooperation with its American partner organisation, Cultural Vistas, GIZ supports the participants in applying for the J-1 visa, provides assistance during their stay in the USA and can arrange financial assistance in the form of grants and travel subsidies from the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. Participants can also apply to attend a language course alongside their internships. The participants themselves are responsible for finding their internships.
