General conditions
We receive far more requests for internships than we can accommodate. We have therefore decided to reserve our intern positions for students/trainees who can document that their curriculum requires an internship. As a rule, our interns do not receive remuneration or other kinds of payment. If our budget allows, we will pay interns working in one of our departments abroad a flat fee for travel expenses. Some departments and commissions may also be able to provide accommodation.

Funding information
Students can apply for DAAD funding for short stays at DAI departments abroad (DAAD = Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst). DAAD funding usually covers traveling as well as a partial monthly stipend for living expenses. DAAD only funds internship with a minimum duration of six weeks. Please check the DAAD website for more details on funding opportunities and application requirements.
