Hello everyone,

I did not see a thread for this fellowship, so I decided to start a new one. If you have applied for this year, feel free to post about your excitement (or anxiety).

I applied this year! Do you know when we hear back about it? I remember it being sometime in December. What internship field are you interested in? What is your background? Did you apply for any other fellowships (fulbright or USTA Austria)?

Nice to see some other applicants! I had an alumni help me during the application process and he said that he found out January 6th, so my guess is that we’ll find out about the interview really early in January. My internship field is Student Affairs! I’m interested in pursuing a career in International Education and working at a college or university, so I that’s what I built my application around. I’ve worked in the field for 3 years while I’ve completed my undergrad degree. In terms of background, I’m a 4th year student studying Family Sciences! I’ve never been to Germany but I’ve read about the country a lot in my classes and I actually befriended a German exchange student this past semester. I did not apply for any other fellowships unfortunately. This is the first fellowship application that I have applied to so I decided to take in slow this time around. What about you?

Hi! I do not know when we hear back. I am interested in Museums as my internship field. I graduated in May 2019 with my undergrad in Philosophy and a minor in German. I applied for Fulbright and am a semi-finalist. I am also applying for the USTA!

Interviewed in Atlanta not too long ago! Felt pretty young relative to the other interviewees, who were all graduating seniors.

Hey all, just wanted to pass on that the American High School CBYX participants were all pulled from Germany due to CoVid-19 and (I believe) are in a 2-week quarantine in the States right now. I'm not sure yet about the Young Professionals group, as they've been circulating a petition to stay in Germany (my friend is an alum and it was sent to her). I know a similar program set to start in June (CLS - the Critical Language Scholarship Program) has been canceled this year. I'm still hoping for the best due to the later start date and an update soon, but I'm sure administration is very preoccupied with the current participants now. Though I really hope it will still happen, just be prepared to apply another year.
