LHS’s Abigail Ashley receives Congress-Bundestag scholarship. 

Ludington High School senior Abigail Ashley, was one of 250 high school students from across the United States to be selected as a 2022-2023 recipient of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) Scholarship. Abigail is the daughter of Leona and Scott Ashley.

Initiated in 1983 to strengthen ties between Germany and the United States, the CBYX program is jointly funded and managed by the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag. Students who participate in the program learn about German culture first hand by living with a host family and attending a German high school for a year.  Youth For Understanding USA (YFU) administers the CBYX program in Michigan through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs promotes international mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through a wide range of academic, cultural, private-sector, professional, and sports exchange programs. The Bureau’s exchanges engage youth, students, educators, artists, athletes, and emerging leaders in many fields in the United States and in more than 160 countries. Alumni of State Department exchanges comprise one million people around the world, including more than 75 Nobel Laureates and more than 450 current or former heads of state and government.
