Full Scholarship Program for High School Students to Study Abroad in Germany

The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) Program Offers an Academic Year Abroad in Germany

 
PRLog - Nov. 26, 2012 - 250 full scholarships are available nationally for the 2013-14 academic year for high school students and recent graduates to study abroad in Germany. The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) scholarship covers an academic year of study and cultural immersion in Germany through funding from the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Scholarship recipients live with a host family and attend a local high school, serving as youth ambassadors from the United States while participating in educational, cultural and political events. Prior to the start of the program and while in Germany, scholars attend receptions and meetings with both German and American government officials.

The CBYX program was founded in 1983 in an endeavor to strengthen U.S.- German relations through increased ties of friendship and cultural understanding. Since its inception, CBYX has administered exchanges for over 17,000 German and American students. Dedicated supporter Senator Richard Lugar (Former Senator, IN) calls CBYX “an extraordinary opportunity to learn about the world, gain a deeper understanding of people and issues, build lifelong skills, and expand horizons.”

To access the application and learn more, visit the CBYX website at www.usagermanyscholarship.org.

The CBYX program is administered by a partnership of non-profit exchange organizations. AFS-USA administers the program in the following Northeastern United States locations: CT, D.C., DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, and VT. The application deadline for the Northeast United States is January 10, 2013; residents of this region can call (800) AFS-INFO x 2161 or email cbyx@afs.org for more information. For the application deadline and contact information for all other regions, visit www.usagermanyscholarship.org.
