CrossCulture Programme 2021 Fellowship Germany – Fully Funded

 


With the CCP Fellowships, the CrossCulture Programme (CCP) funds around 100 professionals and committed volunteers from 40 countries each year. During two to three months of practical training in host organisations in Germany or in CCP partner countries, participants deepen their expertise and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organisations benefit from the expertise, regional knowledge and networks of the CCP fellows. The participants then bring their experiences gained abroad into their everyday working life when they return to their home organisation.

In case of ongoing travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is the opportunity to participate in the CrossCulture Programme as a remote fellowship holder. The final decision on the implementation of the fellowships (professional residence in Germany or “remote fellowship”) will be taken in accordance with the Foreign Federal Office in spring 2021.

Whom Is the Programme Designed for?


Fellowships are principally awarded to people working in one of the following fields:

  • Policy and society
  • Media and culture
  • Human rights and peace
  • Sustainable development

In addition, from 2019 to 2023 Civic and citizenship education and Digital civil society will be the focus for those interested in applying for compatible host organisations.

Civic and Citizenship Education

Civic and citizenship education provides both young people and adults with the knowledge and skills that enable them to shape society. Against the background of current challenges such as populism, fake news and hate speech, non-formal political education, especially in connection with digital media, is gaining in importance for an active and democratically organised civil society. People working in civic and citizenship education and pursuing goals in the fields of work listed above will be supported with these key issues.

Digital Civil Society

Digitisation refers not only to technical innovation, but also to fundamental societal, social and political change that proceeds at a rapid pace. In this context, civil society actors are confronted simultaneously with new challenges and new opportunities. The digital divide that arises between population-groups is an omnipresent challenge of digitisation. At the same time, civil society actors are using digital tools to strengthen the inclusion of marginalised groups. CCP aims to support people facing the challenges of digitisation and using its opportunities for the benefit of the wider society.
