ifa > CrossCulture Programme Fellowships (Online / Remote)

With the CCP Fellowships, the ifa’s CrossCulture Programme (CCP) funds around 100 professionals and committed volunteers from 42 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.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and ongoing travel restrictions, the scholarship will be offered as a remote fellowship in 2021.

From 2019 to 2023, ‘Civic and citizenship education’ and ‘Digital civil society’ will be the focus for those interested in applying for compatible host organisations.

The current round of applications is open to residents from India, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Germany.

The programme provides:

  • ifa grant for your subsistence.

  • Technical and financial support to enable participation through digital tools.

  • Licenses for the use of digital collaboration tools and platforms.

  • Online specialist trainings considering the fellows’ individual and professional aims.

  • Digital exchange, collaboration and workshops with CCP fellowship holders, NGOs and alumni from the CCP countries.

Applicants must be between the ages of 23 and 45 at the time of the application and have good written and spoken English skills. They must also have at least two years of proven professional experience or volunteer work in a civil society organisation in the country of origin.
