DAAD RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering)
DAAD Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) is a summer internship program for undergraduate students (sophomore and juniors) from the United States, Canada and the UK in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering. It offers unique opportunities for undergraduate students to work with research groups at universities and top research institutions across Germany for a period of 2 to 3 months during the summer. RISE interns are matched with doctoral students whom they assist and who serve as their mentors. The working language is English. All scholarship holders receive stipends from the DAAD to help cover living expenses, while partner universities and research institutes provide housing assistance.
Seniors and recent graduates may apply through the RISE Professional Program for a 6 week-3 month internship in Germany. German language requirements depend on the nature of the internship. Some require at least an intermediate level of German language skills while others require none at all.
