Young professionals and voluntarily engaged persons can now apply for the CrossCulture Programme 2017. The programme is an opportunity to expand your competence as well as to gather international experience through work stays in another culture. CrossCulture internships open up and strengthen the exchange between people, institutions and cultures and thus enable an enhanced partnership between Germany and Islamic countries. Internships last at least 8 weeks and last up to maximum of three months.
