Strengthening civil societies: CCP Fellowships

Strengthening civil societies: CCP Fellowships







Fully Funded

Some countries


Dec 18, 2023

More details :

With the CCP Fellowships, the CrossCulture Programme (CCP) funds between 50 to 70 professionals and committed volunteers from up to 40 countries each year. During two to three months of work-related stays in host organisations in Germany or CCP partner countries, participants deepen their expertise, establish new contacts and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organisations benefit from the expertise, regional knowledge and networks of the CCP Fellows. Participants can also attend intercultural workshops, networking and professional events hosted by the CCP. After returning to their daily working lives, participants then bring the experience they have gained into their home organisation.

In 2023, fellowships will be offered as on-site fellowships. Subject to funding by the German Federal Foreign Office and based on their personal situation and COVID-19 entry requirements, participants may decide to participate as well as digital fellow.
