The Crop Trust accepts applications on a continuous basis for internships. In order to provide interns with a meaningful experience, we are only able to accommodate a limited number of interns at any one time.
The length of internships vary, but typically appointments are for a period of three months. Internships are initially unpaid for the three-month duration, but depending on organizational needs and performance of the interns, the intern may be offered a temporary staff contract which includes a stipend. Interns must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program (having completed at least two years of undergraduate work) or have completed their undergraduate program within the last six months, or be currently enrolled in a masters level or other post-graduate program. Depending on the length of the assignment, interns may be eligible for annual leave and medical leave.
Candidates must already have eligibility to legally reside in Germany for the full period of their assignment (the Crop Trust cannot assist in this) and must provide proof of adequate medical insurance.
The Crop Trust will also consider applications from graduates of masters programs or other post-graduate programs in an area that is relevant to the Crop Trust and who demonstrate an interest in the specific area in which they may operate at the Crop Trust. Persons who meet these criteria are considered ‘Fellows’. Fellow positions have a duration of not less than one year and may not exceed a period of two years. These positions are paid, entry-level positions with entitlement for enrollment in the Crop Trust’s medical scheme and retirement plan. Fellows are also entitled to annual leave and medical leave. Any relocation costs, if relevant, are normally not covered for fellow positions.
