Internship Opportunities & Fellowship Programs

Fellowship applications now open (September-December 2017) - "Rethinking Security in the 21st Century - German-Israeli Perspectives"

The Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) offer young leaders from Germany an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in Israel in cooperation with the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) on the theme: “Rethinking Security in the 21st Century: German-Israeli perspectives”. The Fellowship program aims to explore contemporary security challenges while bringing together fresh perspectives from Israel and Germany while focusing on the less obvious aspects of the field of security, e.g. migration, humanitarian aid, environment, energy, technology, human rights, and gender.

The Fellows program provides young public policy professionals with an opportunity to work alongside researchers at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv (INSS) and gather first-hand experience in the field of international security. As part of the program, the Fellows will be required to write a policy paper based on a research proposal; furthermore, the Fellows will be able to draw on the pool of partners of the IPPI and familiarize themselves with relevant actors in the country.

The program is intended for young leaders from Germany who are interested in the area of international security and who have already gathered relevant experience in the field. We are looking for exceptional university graduates that will be integrated into the routine work of the Institute for National Security Studies as well as the Israeli office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

The Heinrich Boell Stiftung Israel Office welcomes applications for internship opportunities (April 2018 onwards)

The Heinrich Boll Stiftung (HBS) is the German green foundation affiliated with the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens = Bündnis 90/Die Grünen). The Heinrich Boll Stiftung has been funding projects in Israel since 1992, and the office in Tel Aviv opened in 1998. The work in Israel takes place in the complex and multidimensional context of German-Jewish relations, German-Israeli relations and the Israeli-Palestinian and Israeli-Arab conflict. 

An internship at the HBS allows one to experience the daily work of our foundation and to familiarize oneself with diverse social change organizations in Israel. The internship positions are usually available for a period of three / six months, and comprise four and a half days a week. Unfortunately, interns do not receive any kind of remuneration or coverage of travel expenses.

Interns are considered full members of the HBS team. They are encouraged to take an active part in the office as well as in events and other activities.

The intern's tasks consist of administrative work and support of program and event coordination. In addition, interns have a possibility to assist in research and writing of website articles.

We encourage applicants who are politically and socially involved, creative, pro-active, and have a genuine interest in the values and mission of the Heinrich Boell Foundation as well as in Israel. Fluent English language skills are essential.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from people with a diverse background.

Application Procedures

Internship opportunities are available from April 2018 onwards.

Please email your application, including CV and motivation letter in English to info@il.boell.org. Please explain why you would like to intern at the hbs Israel.

In any given year, there are only a few places available. The application process is competitive and positions are filled quickly. We therefore recommend applicants to submit their applications early, at least 4-6 months prior to your desired start date.

Other materials such as references, letters of recommendation, transcripts etc. may be requested later on and do not need to be included in your application.

 

 

 

 

 

Who we are

Fostering democracy and upholding human rights, taking action to prevent the destruction of the global ecosystem, advancing equality between women and men, securing peace through con­ flict prevention in crisis zones, and defending the freedom of individuals against excessive state and economic power – these are the objectives that drive the ideas and actions of the Heinrich Böll Foundation. We maintain close ties to the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens) and as a think tank for green visions and projects, we are part of an international net­work encompassing well over 100 partner projects in approxi­mately 60 countries.

The Heinrich Böll Foundation works independently and nurtures a spirit of intellectual openness. We maintain a world­ wide network with currently 30 international offices. We co­operate closely with 16 state-level Böll Foundations in each of Germany’s federal states, and we support talented, socio-politi­cally engaged undergraduate and graduate students in Germany and abroad.

We gladly follow Heinrich Böll’s exhortation for citizens to get involved in politics, and we want to inspire others to do the same.
