TRAINEESHIPS IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE 2021

Apply for the Traineeships in the European Parliament for Young People around the globe.

Deadline: 30 June

The European Parliament offers two types of traineeships: Traineeships in the Secretariat (Schuman traineeships) and Traineeships with Members of the European Parliament

Traineeships in the Secretariat – Schuman Traineeships

The Schuman traineeships are paid and can be undertaken at one of the European Parliament’s official places of work – Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg – or in its Liaison Offices in the Member States.

These traineeships are named after Robert Schuman, one of the main architects of the European integration project, responsible for over 70 years of peace and prosperity in Europe. He proposed pooling French and German coal and steel production into what would become the European Coal and Steel Community, the first of the European Communities, which grew to become the European Union.
