Did anyone apply to CBYX? I am a semifinalist through AFS. For those who don't know - CBYX is a State Department-funded scholarship that provides 250 scholarships total to Germany for US students. The scholarships are administered by five organizations (AFS, FLAG, YFU, CIEE, and ASSE) depending on one's region.

Thank you! I'm really excited. I might hear back late next week! I think my interview went well, but I didn't get to meet the other CBYX semifinalists, so who knows! I'll see :)

Thanks everyone! I'm definitely going for YES and ExCEL anyways, though I'm not sure if I would choose ExCEL or CBYX if I were to get those two. I'll see if I get the opportunity to make a choice!

CBYX has a young professionals, 18-24 program that I'm planning to apply for next year.

cerejeira, good luck! I don't know much about that program (I just read the website once or twice) but it looks like a wonderful opportunity.

I received my scholarship acceptance info today! First thing tomorrow I'm calling AFS, and hopefully I'll be able to extend the deadline for acceptance easily.
