The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), also known as the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, is a German political foundation named after the first chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. KAS operates worldwide with the aim to promote democracy through political education and training.
Since 1999 KAS has funded an internship program, run by the South African Institute of International Affairs in conjunction with the University of the Witwatersrand.

The duration of the internship is from February to November each year. Successful candidates receive a full bursary for their tuition fees and a monthly stipend to cover their living costs and accommodation.
The deadline is on 15 September 2020.
- A letter of motivation outlining your research interests and how you hope to use the skills gained at SAIIA in the long term.
