Thematic focus:

In 2019, the focus will be on civic education. The new scholarship is therefore explicitly aimed at those applicants who deal with this topic professionally in the narrower or broader sense.

Civic education plays an important role in the development of an active civil society. It fosters the capacities of citizens, both youth and adults, to better understand societal and political circumstances, in order to engage actively in their society.

Furthermore, digital tools play an increasing and essential role in our daily life. They create new ways of interaction in high speed, which also affects the field of civic education. Therefore, two of the fellowships concentrate on digital aspects of civic education.

Structure and procedure:

Selected participants from abroad complete an eight to twelve-week scholarship at one of the pre-selected organisations in Germany between May and December 2019. “CCP Focus” provides fellows with the opportunity to establish professional contacts and to familiarise themselves with the specificities of the host-organisations operational procedures, methods and tools in the field of civic education. In addition, “CCP Focus” is closely linked to the other CCP scholarships so that a professional exchange among fellows from different countries and regions is possible. Fellows are invited to share experiences with their professional networks in their home country in order to promote the building and maintenance of intercultural and cross-national networks.
