The Internship Scheme in European Union Institutions for 2022-2025 will receive funding of €1.288m.

The internship scheme currently provides opportunities for graduates to acquire work placements in the specialised subject field of translation and proofreading.

This year’s funding is to allow the scheme to expand to include the appointment of up to four interpreter interns who will undertake work experience in the autumn. An allowance of €2,000 per month will be made available for the internships for a period of six months – two months language placement and four months intensive training in the Directorate-General for Interpretation in the European Commission. Funding of up to €322,000 has been approved annually for the internship scheme over a four-year period.

The Minister of State Jack Chambers, T.D., said:

“I am delighted to announce the expansion of this very successful internship scheme to include interpreting for the first time. The scheme provides Irish speakers with an opportunity to experience working life in Europe, to receive training from the institutions, and to add to their skills, providing them with improved prospects in recruitment competitions in the future. Feedback from both the participants and the various EU institutions has been extremely positive and the success of the scheme has been evidenced by many interns securing jobs in the institutions. I wish continued success to the interns in this special year where we celebrate 50 years of membership of the EU.”
