Apply by May 31, 2020, to participate in AICGS’ project “Social Divisions and Questions of Identity in Germany and the United States.”
AICGS is recruiting sixteen participants (eight from Germany, eight from the U.S.) per year who have been active, professionally or on a voluntary basis, in the service of communities that have experienced societal division and/or marginalization in the U.S. and Germany to participate in its project “Social Divisions and Questions of Identity in Germany and the United States.” Participants ideally will be involved in regional politics, schools and education, civil society organizations, the media, or social and economic efforts that benefit their communities.
Selected participants are required to take part and actively engage in all scheduled events. The second program year will take place in Buffalo, New York from September 20-25, 2020 and Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia from April 18-23, 2021. Travel, accommodation, and most meals will be provided for the participants by AICGS. Buffalo and Dortmund established their city partnership in the early 1970s.
