Breathtaking, isn’t it?
Taylor, a Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals participant, celebrated the start of Oktoberfest in true German style with his host family in Saarbrücken.
It’s that time of year again! ProFellow has put together our annual list of our Top 10 Summer Fellowships.
While you may be considering a summer job or unpaid internship, a competitive, paid fellowship could introduce you to a new career path, teach you a new skill or even fund a summer abroad. Application deadlines for summer fellowships typically fall between December and February so now is the best time to prepare.
This weekend ten international interns and trainees from eight different countries — representing Peru, Argentina, Egypt, France, Germany, China, Japan and Brazil — came together to explore the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. along with a couple Cultural Vistas staff members.
A great time was had by all! In the words of one participant:
“It was an amazing experience that let us strengthen bonds between an international community, as we are. We learn new cultural features of leaving in US, including what people likes as spies stories, 007, and sports fans, which also we like… As almost most of us are away from our families, let me say that this meeting seems as a global family reunion, with lots of fun.”
We look forward to seeing more international interns and trainees at future cultural events!
College pride in Hauptbanhof!
Great write-up on Rachel, who recently completed a year-long internship with our Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals team and is now off to Germany to continue her career pursuits.
Alex, Brian, and Tamar each interned in Berlin with us this summer and earlier this week, they shared the impact of their experiences on the Eastern Michigan University campus with college and area high school students, the Honorary Consul of Detroit and the Chicago Chamber of Commerce, as part of German-American Day.
Berlin beleuchtet! Today marks the first day of the Berlin Festival of Lights. For the next 2 weeks, many of Berlin’s buildings and landmarks will be illuminated with various colored lights and projections. Truly a sight to see!
