With the CCP Fellowships, the CrossCulture Programme (CCP) funds around 100 professionals and committed volunteers from over 40 countries each year. Fellowships are principally awarded to people working in one of the following fields: policy and society, media and culture, human rights and peace, sustainable development. 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.
