Purdue University student Anwar Torres has been selected to participate in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals in Germany.

Torres, a graduate student in the College of Engineering from Los Angeles, was one of 75 Americans picked to participate from an applicant pool of more than 500 students.

During the yearlong program, Torres will spend two months in an intensive German language program, four months taking classes at a German university or college of applied science and five months in an internship related to his field.

Participants in the program must be between 18-24 years old and be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The program is intended primarily for young adults in the business, technical, vocational and agricultural fields, though applicants from all fields can apply.
