The objective of this program is to provide opportunities for Stanford Graduate students to spend 8-12 weeks in Germany in internship positions or performing research at local institutions. Students may identify their target institutions based on their curricular expertise and career goals; the program staff provides support in locating potential host sites and in negotiating arrangements. Applicants are encouraged to consider the full range of potential placement sites, from startups to established industry players and research institutions.
Exact start and end dates will be determined by the host and the student. Grants up to $9,000 will be provided to each awardee to cover the cost of travel and basic living expenses. Awardees will be required to submit a three-page report of their experience two weeks after their return. This is a co-sponsored effort between The Europe Center and the Stanford Club of Germany.
