Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange

This federally funded scholarship to Germany is a unique opportunity for students and young professionals between the ages of 18-24 to work and study in a foreign country. The one-year cultural exchange is designed to give 75 Americans an understanding and knowledge of everyday life in Germany by living with a host family, studying at a German university, and working in a German company or organization.

The program is designed primarily for those in business, technical, vocational and agricultural fields, although applicants in all fields are encouraged to apply. Strong interest in German and international affairs is essential, although German language skills are not required to apply.

The program has three components: a two-month intensive German language course in Germany; four-month study at a German university or professional school; and a five-month internship with a German company or organization in the participant's target field. For the duration of the program, participants live with German host families or in shared-apartment situations.
