General option applicants must provide a substantial paper written for a university degree or scientific journal.

PAID internships at the European Parliament are being awarded to graduates of universities or equivalent institutions. Their purpose is to enable interns to supplement the knowledge they acquired during their studies and familiarise them with the activities of the European Union, particularly the European Parliament. The interns are awarded Robert Schuman scholarships in the general or journalism option. General option applicants must provide a substantial paper written for a university degree or scientific journal.

One of these scholarships, known as the Chris Piening Fellowship, is awarded to a candidate whose paper concerned relations between the European Union and the United States. Applicants for the journalism option must demonstrate professional experience through published works, membership in an association of journalists in an EU member state, or by a qualification in journalism recognised in the EU. The internships are awarded for a period of five months. For those starting in October, the deadline is midnight on May 15, 2008. Applicants are advised not to wait until the last day to apply, to prevent the system from becoming overloaded. The process begins by filling in the application form at www.europarl.europa.eu/parliament. Selected candidates are then asked to send supporting documents, which include a copy of a university diploma(s) and an objective assessment of their skills. General option candidates must also submit proof of a written work (attestation, cover page, diploma, etc.). The journalism option candidates must hand in publication or proof of membership in the association. For more information, go to www.europarl.europa.eu/parliament, section Traineeships.
