Call for applications: Civic Education in Action

Civic Education in Action - an exchange program for young professionals from Central and Southeastern Europe

The Federal Agency for Civic Education and the Robert Bosch Stiftung
are awarding 20 scholarships to young professionals from Bulgaria, the Czech
Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and
Slovenia, working in civic education.

The program addresses qualified individuals who want to be involved in networking civic
education in Europe. The participants will spend 8 to 10 weeks as interns in a
German education institute. They will work there with their German colleagues,
establishing ties for future cross-border cooperation. During the
guest term, the scholarship holders will develop a project about the social or
political situation in their home country. They will implement this project together
with their host organization within the scope of the Civic Education
Campaign Days, the most important campaign for civic education in Germany.
Subsidies to the amount of € 3,000 are available for the project.
The introductory, mid-term and evaluation seminars are a permanent part of
the program.
