Beginning your internship search early allows you to apply for funding to help meet your expenses abroad. Please note that scholarship programs typically have very early deadlines! Some internships are paid, but often even these will not cover all of your expenses.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides information on scholarship resources for internships; however, please note that you must apply to the International Office at your UAS for scholarships from DAAD.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) offers scholarships for young professionals doing an internship in North America.
