Madeline Estes to participate in the 2011-2012 Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals
Madeline Estes has been selected to participate in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a year-long, federally-funded fellowship for study and work in Germany. Ms. Estes was selected as one of 75 participants (from more than 500 applicants) for this unique fellowship program. Since 1984, over 1,500 Americans have been awarded this opportunity to gain cultural, theoretical, and practical work experience in Germany, and Ms. Estes will be participating in the 28th year of the CBYX program (2011-2012).
While in Germany on CBYX, Ms. Estes will attend a two-month intensive German language course, study at a German university or professional school for four months, and complete a five-month internship with a German company in her career field. Participants are placed throughout Germany, and have the opportunity to learn about everyday German life from a variety of perspectives.
