DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN • PRINCETON UNIVERSITY
For almost forty years, the German Department's Summer Work Program has offered Princeton students a unique opportunity to improve their language skills while learning about Germany, Austria, or Switzerland. You will live in a typical environment and learn through everyday contact about people, their attitudes, values, and aspirations. You will be part of the country’s work force and integrated into its social structure.
The Summer Work Program places students in jobs with German, Austrian, and Swiss companies and institutions. Internships ordinarily last for eight weeks, usually from late June to late August.

Eligibility: Any student with a good grade in German 107 (fourth semester) or equivalent competence in German can apply.The application procedure includes a short interview in German. (Download a PDF of the application form here.)
Housing: In a few cases the companies provide housing; otherwise in the past students have made their own arrangements. The Program gives all possible assistance to you in arranging housing.
Transportation Costs: The costs for a round-trip plane ticket to Europe and any transportation within Europe are usually borne by each participant. Students who are in need of assistance may, however, apply to the German Department for travel assistance grants.
Summer Earnings for Financial Aid Students: Because the Program is educational in nature, the Princeton Financial Aid Office will modify its expectations with regard to the usual obligation of scholarship students to earn money during the summer. Students should contact the Financial Aid Office individually.
The Application Deadline for the 2005 program is Friday, October 15, 2004.
