2019 CrossCulture Fellowship for professionals & committed volunteers

Deadline: December 21, 2018.

Step outside the cultural box and gain professional experience in a different cultural environment! The CrossCulture Programme (CCP) – conducted by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) – supports you in this endeavour. For more than 12 years, we have been enabling young professionals and volunteers to work for two to three months in Germany (for non-German applicants only) or in one of the 35 participating countries (for German applicants only). The intercultural and professional fellowship is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.



1. Young professionals and long-term volunteers with at least two years of professional experience are eligible to apply for CCP. Applications by enrolled students cannot be considered. Professional experience is expected in the following fields of work:
• politics & society
• human rights & peace building
• sustainable development
• media & culture

2. A long-term involvement in an organisation or institution within the country of residency is assumed.

3. Applicants must be aged between 23 and 45 years.
4. Moreover, the applicant must be in a good physical condition – physical as well as mental working capacity are needed for a long stay abroad.
5. A good command of English is expected from all fellows. Knowledge of German is not mandatory but considered a plus. For German applicants knowledge of the lingua franca in the host country is welcomed (French, Arabic).

Applications for CCP are to be submitted online via our application portal. (For Germany applicants, follow this link).
The following required documents have to be uploaded:

Please pay attention to the technical requirements (e.g. size of documents) and make sure that you have all the necessary documents available when starting the application process, as partial applications cannot be saved. Only fully completed applications will be eligible.
Do not send your application via e-mail to ifa as those applications will not be considered.
