The Association for AgriCulture & Ecology (Agrecol e.V.) in Germany offers internship placements and travel stipends for students enrolled in universities and colleges in German-speaking countries. In 2015, the Association can arrange two internship placements in ecologically oriented agriculture with a partner organisation in South America: Agrecol–Andes in Bolivia.

The internship offers students an opportunity to acquire practical knowledge in sustainable agriculture and land management in a developing country. By living and working in another sociocultural environment, students can also gain valuable intercultural experiences.

The Agrecol Association in Germany covers the travel costs for a round-trip flight between Europe and Bolivia.

Further Information about the internship programme and the requirements can be found in the announcement on the Association’s homepage ( ).

The application, consisting of a convincing letter of motivation (in German and Spanish), concrete details about the desired period of internship and a curriculum vitae in German and Spanish, should be sent by email as pdf attachments to info(at)  and keesgoergen(at)  (Matthias Görgen).

Further questions regarding the internship can be directed to info(at)  or keesgoergen(at)

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2015.
