Recent Grad Earns Grant to Study in Europe

Marit Rubenstein ’15 (Bachelors), currently a manager-in-training in the baking and pastry arts department on the Hyde Park campus, has been accepted into the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program for young professionals.

This program selects 75 American young professionals from all fields and sends them to Germany for a year of professional and cultural exchange. At the same time, 75 young professionals from Germany come to the United States.

Rubenstein heads to Europe in July. Over the years, several CIA graduates have been chosen to participate in the CBYX program—another example of the many experiential opportunities beyond the classroom that are open to CIA students and alumni.
