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 2019 DAAD funded 300 German students, going to 48 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, computer science and life sciences.
Due to the pandemic situation, RISE was cancelled for 2020. DAAD is still following the developments regarding the coronavirus in order to flexibly react to changing situations. As of now, we expect the RISE programs to resume as planned in 2021. For any updates, please check the RISE website.
