RISE Worldwide – Research Internships in Science and Engineering

German undergraduate students with good grades and recommendations from the fields of earth sciences, engineering, natural sciences, medicine, and related disciplines will be matched with researchers worldwide. DAAD provides scholarships for the successful applicants to help cover part of the living and travel costs. In 2016 DAAD funded 228 German students, going to 38 different countries with RISE Worldwide

RISE Worldwide was first offered in 2010. One target was to offer German undergraduates the possibility to go abroad during the summer months. We want to motivate undergraduate students to get international experience in field of natural science, engineering and life sciences.
