Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals
The CBYX program annually provides yearlong fellowships covering two months of intensive German language training, a semester of study at German University or University of Applied Sciences, a five-month internship with a German company in the participant’s career field, housing, transatlantic airfare, health insurance, and a monthly stipend for living expenses.
This program is open to applicants of all years and in all career fields, although preference is given to students in vocational, technical, engineering, business, agricultural, and scientific fields. 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 field, which may include summer, part-time, or internship work.
