Program Description:

Unique Opportunities in Gaining Research Experience in Germany

RISE Germany

RISE stands for Research Internships in Science and Engineering. RISE Germany offers undergraduate students from North American, British and Irish universities the opportunity to complete a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions. RISE Germany is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.

Students are matched with a host university or institute according to their area of interest (biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, or a closely related field)
DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses
Host universities and institutes provide housing assistance and match students with Ph.D. student mentors.

German language is not required and the working language will be in English.

All participants receive stipends from the DAAD to help cover living expenses, while partner universities and research institutes provide housing assistance.

RISE internships were first offered in 2005 to applicants from the US and Canada. Following the first intake of around 100 students in 2005, the number of participants has increased steadily up to 300 and more. About 300 scholarships are available.
