Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University student Kadon Kyte has been accepted to participate in the 2012-2013 Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals.
75 total participants were chosen among a pool of over 500 applicants, and it is a great accomplishment that Kyte was awarded this unique study and work abroad fellowship.
Now entering its 29th year, the CBYX program is made possible due to the ongoing support of the United States Congress and the German Bundestag. Participants are between the ages of 18 and 24 at the start of the program, and must be US citizens or permanent residents.
Applicants do not need to be enrolled to participate, but should have well-defined career goals with related work/internship experience, flexibility, good communication skills, diplomacy, and a strong sense of American identity.
Previous knowledge of German is not required but is strongly recommended. The program is designed primarily for young adults in business, STEM (scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematical), agricultural, and vocational fields, though candidates in all fields are encouraged to apply.
Also, as this is a reciprocal exchange, 75 Germans will be living throughout the US as part of the 2012-2013 program.
The Study Abroad Office would like to congratulate Kyte on his achievement, as well as encourage everyone interested to seize such opportunities.
