Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation offers 88 grants for work experience at its central services and in diplomatic missions and consular offices

Wednesday 7 August 2019

​These two programmes, which mean recovering the grants offered by the ministerial department between 2006 and 2012, are aimed at Spanish nationals that hold the qualification of "Inter-university Master's Degree in Diplomacy and International Relations" taught by the Diplomatic School. In addition, those Spanish nationals that hold the qualification of "Master's Degree in Diplomacy and International Public Function", taught by the International Studies Centre in Barcelona, whose board is part of the department will also be among the beneficiaries on this occasion for the first time.

Both programmes will lead to the completion of the training of participants in international relations, allowing them to see first-hand both the international reality and the different tasks that are carried out by the ministerial department at its central services and on Spanish diplomatic missions and at consular office abroad, thus completing and extending their theoretical studies.

The first programme comprises 48 grants for work experience over a period of nine and a half months. Of these, 15 will be for work experience at the central services and 33 at Spanish diplomatic missions or consular offices abroad: 11 in Europe, 11 in America, seven in Asia and four in Africa.

The second programme offers 40 grants to carry out work experience at the department's central services in the last quarter of this year, coinciding with the organisation of the 14th meeting of Foreign Affairs Ministers of ASEM, to be held in Madrid on 15 and 16 December.

The complete programmes, with the requirements and instructions for the presentation of application, can be consulted on the web page of the Diplomatic School: http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Portal/Es/Ministerio/EscuelaDiplomatica.

The economic provision allocated to the two programmes amounts to 341,500 euros in 2019 and 536,000 euros in 2020.
