The Émigré Memorial German Internship Program – German State Parliaments (EMGIP) is a fellowship program that provides U.S. and Canadian students with internships at a German state parliament (Landtag). Students are placed in German internships according to their experience and interests.

Internships afford students an excellent opportunity to gain government work experience, improve their German language skills, and learn about German culture firsthand. EMGIP is ideal for students planning on pursuing careers at a regional level of government in the U.S. or Canada, or who have an interest in a specific policy issue such as the environment, education and / or healthcare.

EMGIP runs three times a year — fall, spring, and early summer. Application deadlines are in October, December, and March.
