Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations to coordinate student and young professional foreign exchange opportunities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The opportunity is intended to strengthen the relationship between America and Germany based on the common value of democracy and to convey lasting personal and institutional relationships to the successor generation.
The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the administration of the FY 2022 Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) Enhancement Program.
The goals of the CBYX Enhancement Program are to provide German youth participants in the CBYX Secondary School and Young Professionals components with enhanced opportunities to learn about civil society and political life in the United States through a Washington, D.C. workshop designed to improve their understanding of civic engagement in the United States both throughout history and currently. Workshops should include substantive engagement with Congress.
The primary objective of the program is to encourage American and German youth to learn about each other’s society and culture through educational exchange. In addition, the program seeks to promote the participants’ roles as young ambassadors with influence on future American-German relations, and to promote and strengthen the linkages between members of Congress and their Bundestag counterparts. The CBYX program provides a scholarship for an academic year experience of living and studying in the host country.
Americans in Germany are provided with mid-year enhancement activities as well as end-of-year sessions in which they meet with members of the Bundestag. The FY 2022 CBYX Enhancement Program is designed to provide a similar experience to the German participants in the United States.
