Pitt alumna Aditi Kumar (A&S '17) has been selected to participate in the 2017-18 Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX). She is one of only 75 Americans selected for this cultural exchange opportunity, which provides one year of academic, cultural and practical work experience in Germany. In turn, 75 German students will spend one year working and studying in the United States.

Kumar, of Hillsborough, New Jersey, received her Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, as well as a certificate in global studies and a minor in German studies from Pitt. During her time in Germany, she will complete a physical therapy internship, study at a German university and participate in an intensive German language course.

Established in 1983, the CBYX program is sponsored by the United States Congress and the German Bundestag, the country’s equivalent to the U.S. House of Representatives.
