Programme Description

Each year the German Bundestag awards up to 24 scholarships to young graduates who hold citizenship of an Arab country. Applicants for the programme, which takes place between 1 and 30 September, are politically active or show civic engagement and are under 35 years of age at the programme start.

Candidates demonstrate interest in the German parliamentary system and are keen to play an active role in promoting core democratic values and the concept of a diverse civil society in their home countries.

The German Bundestag invites scholars to get to know the German parliamentary system in an intensive programme. A one-week work placement with a Member of the German Bundestag allows them a first-hand experience at the office of a member of the German parliament, and to come into contact with political decision-makers.
