CBYX for Young Professionals is a yearlong fellowship, funded by the German Bundestag and U.S. Congress through the U.S. Department of State. The program annually gives 75 American young professionals the opportunity to study, work, and live with a host in Germany.

Participants are placed throughout Germany. CBYX is primarily designed for participants in business, engineering, technical, vocational, and agricultural fields, though applicants in all fields are encouraged to apply.
