Fall 2019- Summer 2020
The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX) is a fellowship funded by the German Bundestag and U.S. Department of State, that annually provides 75 American and 75 German young professionals, between the ages of 18½–24, the opportunity to spend one year in each other’s countries, studying, interning, and living with hosts on a cultural immersion program.
The program consists of three phases:
- Two months of intensive German language training
- Four months of classes in one’s academic or career field at a university, technical or professional school
- Five-month internships in one’s career field
CBYX is open to candidates in all career fields who are interested in a year of academic, professional, and cultural exchange. Prior German language knowledge is not required, though it is preferred. Applicants should have clear career goals and some relevant work experience in their career fields, which may include summer, part-time, or internship work. Participants must be between the ages of 18½-24, possess a high school diploma or equivalent, and be U.S. citizens.
