Overview:

RISE stands for Research Internships in Science and Engineering. RISE Germany offers undergraduate students from North American and British universities the opportunity to complete a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions.

  • Students are matched with a host university or institute according to their area of interest (biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, or a closely related field)
  • DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses
  • Host universities and institutes provide housing assistance and match students with Ph.D. student mentors
  • German language is not required and the working language will be in English

You can start your internship between May 15 and July 12, 2021 for a duration of three month (minimum stay ten weeks, maximum stay 90 days).
