Step outside the cultural box and gain professional experience in a different cultural environment! The CrossCulture Programme (CCP) - conducted by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) - supports you in this endeavour. For more than 12 years, it has been enabling young professionals and volunteers to work for two to three months in Germany (for non-German applicants only) or in one of the 35 participating countries (for German applicants only). The intercultural and professional fellowship is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
The CrossCulture Programme is designed for people between 23 and 45 who are committed to improving society through their work in relevant organizations. The participants come mainly from Muslim-majority countries (approximately 80% of all selected fellows) as well as from Germany.
Young professionals and long-term volunteers with at least two years of professional experience are eligible to apply for CCP. Applications by enrolled students cannot be considered. Professional experience is expected in the following fields of work:
- politics & society
- human rights & peace building
- sustainable development
- media & culture
Applications are only accepted via the program’s online system. The deadline for applications is 21st of December 2018.
