With the CCP Fellowships, the Cross Culture Programme (CCP) funds around 100 professionals and committed volunteers from 42 countries each year.
During two to three months of practical training in host organizations in Germany or in CCP partner countries, participants deepen their expertise and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organizations 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 organization.
In case of ongoing travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is the opportunity to participate in the Cross Culture 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.
