Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange


Initiated by the United States Congress and the German Bundestag in September 1983 to mark 300 years of the first German settlement in America, CBYX, known as Parlamentarisches Patenschafts-Programm (PPP) in Germany, is a unique, fully-funded scholarship program giving young people ages 15-18 a firsthand experience of the importance of international friendship and cooperation, which rests on shared political and cultural values.

During their CBYX year, scholarship holders attend school, live in a host family, travel the country, and meet with political leaders as they learn about the governmental system of the host country. As they develop friendships for life, young Germans and Americans have the opportunity to improve language skills and act as ambassadors of their country.
