The GIGA offers students the opportunity to complete an internship either at one of its four regional institutes or at the GIGA Information Centre. For a limited number of internships, the GIGA can pay an "allowance for interns" (currently € 231 per month). The application procedure is decentralised. See below for information on the application procedure at the four regional institutes and the GIGA Information Centre. The following instructions apply to all internships at the GIGA:
Please indicate whether you are applying for an internship with expense allowance or for an unpaid internship. In the case of applications for an internship with an allowance, please explain why you need the allowance.
Interns must arrange their own accommodation in Hamburg. Internships at the GIGA usually last between one and three months.
The GIGA offers internships for students only (in the regional institutes only MA; in the GIGA Information Centre also BA). Proof in the form of a valid certificate of enrolment is required.
The following application deadline applies to all internships at the GIGA: 30 September for periods in the respective following calendar year (e.g. 30 September 2023 for internships in 2024).
