|The RISE (Research Internship in Science and Engineering) professional program is administered by DAAD's headquarters in Bonn, Germany. Please visit www.daad.de/rise-pro for the complete program description and application guidelines.
Good research relies on cooperation, and international teamwork is becoming increasingly important. This means that scientists and engineers with international experience are increasingly sought after in both business and industry. The number of truly exciting professional work programs abroad for students in the sciences and engineering is still far too small. Because of this DAAD set out to create unique opportunities for science and engineering students from the United States and Canada interested in gaining serious practical experience in Germany.
Who can apply? Recent graduates, Master and PhD students from North American universities in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, geology and physics (or a closely related field) are invited to apply. Undergraduates who are RISE alumni or former DAAD scholarship holders are also eligible. German language requirements depend on the nature of the internship.
