German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) RISE

German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) program

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will offer the RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) program in Summer 2014. RISE has established itself as an outstanding opportunity to combine serious research with a rewarding study-abroad experience. The RISE program is targeted to students from the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, earth sciences (geology) and related disciplines.

RISE undergrads have the opportunity to work on cutting edge research projects at top research institutions (e.g., Max-Planck-Institutes) and universities in Germany. Students are paired with German PhD students in a unique mentoring partnership to ensure immediate integration into hands-on lab work and a built-in social network with an excellent opportunity to develop new technical skills. RISE participants receive a scholarship to cover living expenses. To learn more about RISE, please visit: or email: .
