The new call for applications of the CrossCulture Programme 2021 is launched!
With its CrossCulture Programme (CCP), the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa/Institute for Foreign Cultural Affairs) is working in partnership with the Federal Foreign Office to build strong civil society networks between Germany and the rest of the world. Since 2005, more than 800 young professionals from the fields of culture, education, science, arts and media have benefited from the opportunities provided by work-related stays either in Germany or in CCP partner countries.
Through its Fellowships, every year the CCP supports around 100 young professionals and volunteers from around 40 countries. By working in host organisations in Germany and other CCP countries, participants have an opportunity to deepen their professional knowledge and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organisations benefit from the fellows’ expertise, regional knowledge and contacts.
On their return home, the participants apply what they have learnt to their organisation’s day-to-day work.
Professional fellowships are awarded for a period of eight to twelve weeks in the following terms:
- June to August 2021
- September to November 2021
Please find more information on our website: https://www.ifa.de/en/funding/crossculture-program/
The CrossCulture Programme offers the following benefits for fellowship holders:
- General support in the preparation of the professional fellowship in Germany
- Monthly grant of 550 Euro
- Accommodation in Germany (single or shared apartment)
- Travel health insurance coverage
- Assumption of travel expenses and visa fees
