This programme aims to improve the professional and practical qualifications and intercultural skills of programme participants
Who can apply?
Students of Natural and Technical Sciences, Agriculture and Forestry who are enrolled in member countries of the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE).
What is supported?
Internships in commercial enterprises, research and higher education institutes.
(This programme is only offered in the countries where there is an IAESTE national committee. Section ST41 of the DAAD assumes the role of the German national committee of the IAESTE.)
Duration of funding
Internships of usually two to three months are arranged, in some cases longer. The length of the internship is decided by the internship provider.
Interns are usually paid 750 euros a month; all IAESTE interns (incoming) are covered by the DAAD's medical, accident and personal liability insurance. The DAAD cannot contribute towards travel expenses.
Applications must be submitted to the IAESTE committee in the country in which the students are enrolled. The responsible national IAESTE committee carries out a selection procedure on a national level and nominates the most qualified applicants. The internship provider decides which applicants to accept.
