CrossCulture Program (CCP) 2021 at 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.
