The Job Shadowing Programme enables the employees from organisations of German minorities to spend four to six weeks at a host institution. In so doing, they receive new impulses and insights for their work and gain further professional training. The participants are inspired by the work of the other institution and learn topic-specific best-practice models and working methods. In addition, this funding programme gives associations, organisations and editorial offices of German minorities the opportunity to network with each other across borders.
Funding recipients intern at a host institution in another country for four to six weeks. They receive a one-time allowance for the cost of travel and accommodation. Depending on the applicant’s country of origin, the allowance for a six-week internship ranges between 1,375 euros and 1,660 euros.
