RISE (Research Internship in Science and Engineering) worldwide
This program is administered by DAAD's headquarters in Bonn, Germany. Please visit https://www.daad.de/rise/en/rise-worldwide/ for the complete program description and application guidelines.

Students in the early stages of their studies who have an excellent background in the fields of engineering, natural sciences, and related disciplines, including earth sciences, and the ambition to work abroad and gain hands-on research experience in their fields will be matched with researchers worldwide who wish to engage in a meaningful cooperation with a young German research assistant. DAAD will support these short-term summer internships by awarding scholarships to successful applicants to help cover part of the living and travel costs.

Why host a German intern? Participating researchers receive invaluable assistance with their own work. They profit both professionally and personally from contact with the RISE worldwide interns by getting a chance to deepen their knowledge of the culture, lifestyle and higher education system in Germany. PhD students are especially encouraged to participate because they, in particular, can benefit by learning how to guide and serve as a mentor to younger students. The program also offers an excellent opportunity to establish academic partnerships with universities in Germany or to intensify already existing transatlantic networks.
