The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals is a work/study fellowship program that gives participants an understanding of everyday life, education, and professional training in Germany, with a strong focus on cultural exchange. Funded by the U.S. Congress and German Parliament (Bundestag), the cultural immersion program enables 75 Americans every year to study, intern, and live with hosts in Germany. The program year consists of: - 2 months of intensive German language instruction at the Carl Duisberg Centren in Cologne, Radolfzell, or Saarbruecken (No prior German language skills required!) - A semester (4 months) of classroom instruction in your career field at a German university or vocational school - A 5-month internship in a German-speaking environment in your career field, all while living with a German host or in a shared apartment. CBYX for Young Professionals is open to candidates in all career fields. Applicants from a broad range of backgrounds are selected for the program each year. Candidates in business, vocational, scientific, engineering, technical, and agricultural fields are especially encouraged to apply. Prior German language knowledge is not required, but is strongly preferred. Previous recipients of Congress-Bundestag scholarships are not eligible to apply.
