Association for Agriculture & Ecology Overseas Internships in Ecologically Oriented Agriculture


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 the coming year (2019), the Association can arrange two internship placements in ecologically oriented agriculture with partner organisations in South America (Mollesnejta, Bolivia) and in West Africa (Agrecol-Afrique, Senegal).

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.
