Internship Opportunity

The European Parliament Liaison Office (EPLO) is pleased to announce the launch of its next round of internships designed for US graduate students and which will take place from mid-April until mid-July 2014 in its Washington D.C. Office  with a possible extension in Brussels and Strasbourg. We are also pleased to inform you that a monthly allowance (€1212) will be granted to the selected candidates.

Please note that the deadline of application is February 6th. Two letters of recommendation directly sent by a faculty member are also required.

In our view, this program provides an opportunity to develop EPLO's cooperation with your department. I am at your disposal to discuss our future collaboration at your convenience. I am also available to meet with you if you deem it useful.
