The Programme offers Ukrainian students the unique opportunity of gathering practical experience at leading German companies for several months. Thus, they enrich their studies with practical knowledge and international experience, extend their qualifications and are able, in the end, achieve their professional targets. Upon the return the experience gathered by interns will be used for economic development of Ukraine and for strengthening of cultural and economic ties between Ukraine and Germany. The program, reaching across whole Ukraine, contributes to the creation of a cross-sectoral network and people-centred regional integration of young and cosmopolitan professionals.
The interns receive a monthly scholarship that is granted by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The participating companies make available both the required management capacities as well as the internship placement. Furthermore, they cover the cost of accommodation for the interns (in case of graduates or internships longer than 3 months the companies are expected to pay minimum German wage including health insurance). Prior to the beginning of internship there is an introductory seminar held in Germany with the aim of preparing the scholars for their internship.
