RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering)

The RISE programs - Research Internships in Science and Engineering

Good research relies on cooperation, and international teamwork is becoming increasingly important. As a result, scientists and engineers with international experience are increasingly sought after in both business and academia. This is why DAAD (the German Academic Exchange Service) has created a number of exciting program opportunities under the "RISE umbrella" for students on both sides of the Atlantic who are interested in gaining research and work experience in an international setting.

All RISE programs are directed at students in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, earth sciences, and physics. While all RISE programs are based on the idea of offering highly motivated students internships and funding during the summer sessions - when typically it is easier both for North American and British students (RISE only) as well as their German peers to "get away" from their actual coursework - different RISE program options are available depending on your academic status and your nationality.

If you are an undergraduate student in any of the disciplines mentioned above and you are currently enrolled at a Canadian university, a university in the United States, or at a university in the UK, and you are looking for the chance to gain research experience in Germany, the RISE program is for you. If you are a graduate or PhD student, a RISE program graduate or a former DAAD scholar from the U.S. or Canada interested in gaining career-building research and work experience in a German company involved in science and engineering, the RISE professional program is for you. If you are a researcher from a university or college worldwide and you are interested in providing a student from a German university with the opportunity to intern as your research assistant, the RISE worldwide program is for you.
