Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) CrossCulture Program Fellowships 2022 (Fully-funded to Germany)

Deadline: January 31, 2022

Applications are open for the CrossCulture Program (CCP) Fellowships 2022. With the CCP Fellowships, the CrossCulture Program (CCP) funds around 120 professionals and committed volunteers from 46 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 2022, fellowships will be offered as digital as well 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 on one of these two options.
