Allison Duh, a senior electrical engineering student, has been selected to participate in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a year-long, federally funded fellowship to study and work in Germany. Duh is one of 75 participants chosen for the program, from a pool of more than 700 applicants. While in Germany, she will attend a two-month intensive German language course, study at a German university for four months, and complete a five-month internship with a German company in her career field, either optoelectronics or microelectronic laser sources. Established in 1984 by members of the U.S. Congress and the German Parliament, the CBYX program is supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. Participants hail from across the U.S. and come from a wide variety of career fields.
