DURHAM, N.H. -- University of New Hampshire student Paloma Bauer has been appointed to a three-month work study program at the German Bundestag in Berlin through the Émigré Memorial German Internship Program.
Bauer, who will graduate this spring with a master's degree in political science, was one of three selected in the international competition that places students in German legislatures. She is the ninth UNH student to be nominated since 1968. In addition to the Bundestag, students work in state parliaments in Dresden, Erfurt, Mainz, Schwerin and Wiesbaden.
Émigré Memorial German Internship Programs were founded in 1965 by professors George Romoser and Louise Holborn, an émigré from Berlin, with later assistance from other scholars of German affairs in North America, and officials and political leaders in Germany. For a time, the program was affiliated with the "Conference Group on German Politics" with EMGIP becoming fully independent in 1983.
An additional phase of the current competitions will take place this summer and fall for internships through March 2002. For more information or to request an application, write: EMGIP, P.O. Box 345, Durham, NH 03824.
