Overseas internship in ecologically oriented agriculture

The Association for AgriCulture & Ecology (Agrecol e.V.) in Germany offers internship placements and travel stipends for students enrolled in universities and colleges in German-speaking countries. In the coming year (2020), the Association can arrange two internship placements in ecologically oriented agriculture with partner organisations in South America (Agrecol-Andes, Cochabamba, Bolivia) and in West Africa (Agrecol-Afrique, Thiès, Senegal).

The internship offers students an opportunity to acquire practical knowledge in sustainable agriculture and land management in a developing country. By living and working in another sociocultural environment, students can also gain valuable intercultural experiences.

The Agrecol Association in Germany covers the travel costs for a round-trip flight between Europe and Bolivia or Senegal.
