Scholarships and Fellowships

The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals

CBYX offers a full-year work-study scholarship with a strong focus on cultural exchange to university students and recent graduates ages 18-24. The program is intended primarily for young adults in business, vocational, scientific, engineering, technical, and agricultural fields, though applicants from all fields are encouraged to apply. CBYX funding covers a round-trip transatlantic flight, university tuition, language training, living stipend, and program-related travel costs in Germany. Participants actively participate in securing their internship positions with assistance from CDSís partner organization in Germany, InWEnt, and are expected to cover incidental expenses as well as represent the U.S. diplomatically while abroad.

The award is open to US citizens and permanent residents. Previous study of the German language is helpful, though not required in all cases.
