With the CCP Fellowships, the CrossCulture Programme (CCP) funds around 80 professionals and committed volunteers from over 35 countries each year. During two to three months of practical training in host organisations in Germany or in CCP partner countries, participants deepen their expertise and acquire intercultural skills. In turn, the host organisations 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 organisation.
Fellowships are principally awarded to people working in one of the following fields:
Policy and society
Media and culture
Human rights and peace
In 2020, for the first time, 12 CCP Fellowships will be awarded in the following six partner countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, Colombia, Mexico.
