RISE Germany offers summer research internships in Germany for undergraduate students from North America, Great Britain and Ireland. In their internships, students are carefully matched with doctoral students, whom they assist and who serve as their mentors. Interns receive a monthly stipend to cover everyday costs. About 300 scholarships are available each year. The objective of the scholarship is to promote student exchange to Germany in the fields of natural science, engineering and life sciences, and to motivate undergraduate students to learn more about Germany’s research landscape and study opportunities.
The program now includes additional funding, which will allow DAAD to cover travel costs for award winners in the US and Canada to and from Germany. To learn more about the RISE program, upcoming application deadlines and scholarship specifics, click the link below.
