RISE Worldwide offers summer research internships across the world to German undergraduate students with academic training in biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, or a closely related field.

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.

Please note, this program is administered by DAAD's headquarters in Bonn, Germany. Please visit the RISE Worldwide website for the complete program description and application guidelines.
