Where do I have to send my application forms to?
Please send your application documents to the coordination and contact point in Milwaukee.
They will take care of the rest of the application procedure.

Do students have the opportunity to choose where they would like to be placed? Are internships matched to areas of study?
Usually the process runs as follows:
According to your CV and your Letter of Motivation we check what kind of placement meets your demands (and the demands of your study course) best. Then we check with potential host organisations, if your qualification meets their requirements. If both sets of requirements are matched we send you one or more offers. Then you can decide which one suits you best.
However if you rather prefer to search for a placement yourself (using our information services at www.practical-training.de), this would also be possible. If you choose this way, please make sure that your placement is located in the state of Hessen so that you can benefit from our Hessen support network.

Does the program find housing or do students do that themselves?
The Coordination and Contact Point Fulda will find housing for you.

How much does it cost?
The services you get from the Hessen/Wisconsin exchange program are paid by the state of Wisconsin and by the state of Hessen, i.e. you just pay your usual tuition at your university. The costs of housing depends very much on the region you are staying in Hessen and the category/quality you prefer. To give you just two examples: a single room with shared bathroom and kitchen with cleaning service once a week would cost in Fulda 490 Euros per month (holiday house standard). A single room in a "Wohngemeinschaft", shared students flat, would start in Fulda with approx. 150 Euro per month (basic "student standard").

Is it possible to do the internship part-time?
Because of work permit restrictions, part-time internships are unfortunately not possible.

Is the internship a paid position?
This is subject of negotiation between you and your host organisation and depends very much on your qualification and the length of your stay (and the type of your host organisation, e.g. internships at non-profit organisations are usually unpaid). However a typical remuneration for a 3 month internship in Germany would be arround 200-250 Euro per month.

What types of positions are available?
We cooperate with all universities in Hessen (which might e.g. offer internships in research projects) and a number of associations and companies, so that we can offer a wide variety of internships.

When does the summer internship start and end?
You give us the dates you are available and we will try to arrange the internship according to your dates.
