Dawn Noyes of Dolores has been selected to partaicipate in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a year-long federally funded fellowship for study and work in Germany.
Noyes has studied at Colorado State University and was selected as one of 75 participants (from more than 600 applicants) for this unique fellowship program.
While in Germany, she 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, which is marketing.
Conceived and supported by members of the United States Congress and the German parliament (Bundestag), the CBYX program is financially supported by the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act, and by the Bundestag.
CBYX is a reciprocal scholarship program. While American participants will experience life in Germany, young German professionals will live in the United States during the upcoming academic year, studying at U.S. colleges in the fall and working at businesses in the spring, all while living with an American host.
