Objective

As of now, we expect the RISE programs to resume as planned in 2021. The pandemic continues to develop dynamically in many countries. Under certain conditions RISE internships could take place virtually, too. Please note the valid entry restrictions.

This programme promotes the exchange of North American, British and Irish students in the fields of science and engineering. Students get first impressions of the research and landscape in Germany and will connect with doctoral students who serve as their mentors at universities and research institutions or with researchers from universities of applied sciences (UAS).

Who can apply?

Undergraduate students majoring in the fields of science and engineering as well as in computer science. Applicants must have completed at least two years of undergraduate study. Seniors or forth year students must prove that they will still be fully enrolled upon their return to their home university in North America, the UK or Ireland. For most positions knowledge of German is not required. The application is completely online at www.daad.de/rise-germany

What can be funded?

Research internships under the supervision of doctoral students at German universities or non-university research institutes or researchers at universities of applied sciences in the summer break.
