Internship Opportunities & Fellowship Programs
The Heinrich Boell Stiftung Israel Office welcomes applications for internship opportunities (April 2021 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. Internships are primarily aimed at Bachelor students.
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.
Internship opportunities are available from January 2020 onwards for a period of three months.
To apply for an internship, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
2) Motivation letter detailing your interest in the internship and the region;
3) Please specify your desired internship period or periods (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December).
As 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.
