The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX)

Logo for Congress-Budestag Youth Exchange Program "Celebrating over 20 years of exchange"The Congress-Budestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals is a scholarship program with a strong focus on cultural exchange. It is designed to give participants understanding for every day life, education, and professional training in Germany and the United States. In the US, the program is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the Department of State under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961. In Germany the program is funded through the Administration of the Bundestag.

It is intended primarily for young adults in business, technical, vocational, and agricultural fields.  75 Americans and 100 Germans participate in the program each year.  For American participants, the 12- month program begins in late July, and consists of two months intensive German, four months classroom instruction at a German University of Applied Sciences, and five months internship in career field.

Carl Duisberg International CDS

Following World War II, alumni from the first exchanges founded the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft (CDG) in 1949 to help engineers, businessmen and farmers gain international work experience necessary for the rebuilding of Germany.  In 1968, the Carl Duisberg Society was founded in New York City as a nonprofit organization to develop more opportunities for Americans to gain international practical training.  Our name was changed to CDS International in 1987 to reflect the increasingly international nature of our programs.  In addition to our programs with the CDG in Germany, CDS International administers programs with foreign partners and participants in over 50 countries worldwide.

CDS International, Inc. is committed to the advancement of international career training opportunities customized to provide individuals with in-depth practical knowledge of other nations' business practices, cultures and political traditions.  These experiences help strengthen global cooperation and understanding amongst individuals, businesses, organizations and communities.
