Local student heading to Germany through exchange program

ASSE International announced that Christopher High School student Fianola Fellows is one of 250 high school students from across the United States to be awarded the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year.  

CBYX is an exchange program co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the German Bundestag (Parliament).  

Since 1983, the U.S. Congress and German Bundestag have funded the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship Program to help prepare young people for a global future. The CBYX program has enabled more than 27,000 students to expand their global perspectives and make new friends. CBYX students are youth ambassadors of the United States, sharing their life and culture with their German hosts and building a greater understanding of the United States and its diversity.

As a CBYX scholarship recipient, Fellows will experience German life firsthand by living with a host family and attending a German high school. During the program, conditions permitting, students will also have the opportunity to meet with both U.S. Congressional Representatives and German Bundestag members.

Scholarship students will be traveling from August 2022 to June 2023.

Each year, as a U.S. Department of State partner, ASSE International awards the fully funded CBYX scholarship to 50 high-achieving high school students from 10 states.

When Fellows leaves for Germany in the summer, there will also be a group of German CBYX scholarship students arriving to live with American host families while attending high school in the United States. 

Students and families interested in receiving more information about hosting a German Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship winner from Germany should call 1.800.333.3802 or visit ASSE’s website at
