With the launch of the Hermann Strenger program in 2010, the Bayer foundation is for the first time also offering support to young people in the non-academic sector to gain work experience abroad.
The program is aimed at committed young people in the final stages of their training or those who have successfully completed their training within the last two years and who are looking to go abroad for a maximum of one year to gain initial international experience as part of a project, internship, training course or simply “on-the-job” work.
The focus is on the following career areas:
- Technical careers
- Science-related careers
- Careers in the health sector
- Business careers
Examples include office/commercial/IT administrators, office communications personnel, systems/industrial/precision mechanics, electronics specialists in industrial and automation engineering, IT technicians, mechatronics engineers, IT specialists, biology and chemistry laboratory technicians, chemical/pharmaceutical technicians, biological/chemical/pharmaceutical/medical assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and medical support staff.
Applications are welcome from individuals from Germany with a suitable project looking to go abroad and from those from outside Germany planning a comparable stay in Germany.
Further prerequisites include good to very good training grades, a high level of commitment professionally and socially or culturally and written confirmation from the foreign receiving institution regarding the planned project.
The current call for applications for the Herman Strenger Scholarships is taking place during the period from June 1 to July 15, 2013. The independent Foundation Board will hold its next selection meeting on September 6, 2013.
