Architectural engineering senior Kendra Morrow 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. She is one of 75 participants from more than 700 applicants for this fellowship program. 

While abroad, she will attend a two-month intensive German language course, study at a German university, and complete a five-month internship with BuroHappold Engineering.

Created by members of the United States Congress and the German Parliament (Bundestag), the CBYX program is financially supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act, and by the Bundestag.

Participants are from a wide variety of career fields, and from all over the United States. They must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents between the ages of 18-24, and have clear career goals and experience in their professional fields. Young professionals in STEM, business, agricultural, and vocational fields are especially encouraged to apply, though candidates in all career fields are eligible. German language ability is not required, but is strongly recommended.

Kendra's study abroad journey begins in late July 2014. Follow her blog as she leaves Baytown, TX and spends one year in Berlin, Germany.
