Bundestag member Wolfgang Börnsen (Bönstrup) is in Yerevan to hold a selection of students who have applied for Bundestag International Parliamentary Scholarship (IPS) 2014.

At the Press Conference held at the Media Center on October 9 Wolfgang Börnsen noted that the main requirements for getting the scholarship are knowledge of German, certificate of an educational institution and a wish to act for democratic traditions.

The IPS program is aimed at highly qualified young men and women who are interested in politics and wish to plan a responsible role in shaping the democratic future of their country.

The German Bundestag offers young people the opportunity to get to know the German parliamentary system and political decision-making processes and to gain practical experience of parliamentary work during a 15-week work placement with a Member of the Bundestag.

The scholarship-winners are chosen by the German Bundestag’s independent selection panel.

Three Armenian young people will be selected for the program of 2014. In the framework of the program 120 students from 28 countries will spend four months in Germany and study the parliamentary system. 

“Bundestag members work with the Armenian students with pleasure, considering them great ambassadors of their country”, Wolfgang Börnsen said.

“These scholarships are of special interest; this is another category suggesting parliamentarism and parliamentary traditions”, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Armenia Reiner Morell commented.

The Armenian alumni of the IPS is presented at www.ips.am.
