|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-programs for the complete program description and application guidelines.
Looking for a practical, career-building experience in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Sciences and Engineering (or closely related subjects)? Are you graduating this summer with your Bachelor's, or are currently a Master or PhD student from the US or Canada (or an undergraduate DAAD alumna/us)? RISE professional internship placements provide students the opportunity to live and work in an international context, to gain confidence in their practical and professional skills, and to improve their German. Last but not least, the internship should be a source of mutual cultural and professional enrichment for both the interns and their host companies.
DAAD will provide a monthly scholarship of €150 for undergraduates, €250 for MA students and graduates and €500 for PhD students, lasting 1.5 to 6 months. Furthermore each scholarship holder will receive a lump sum of €600 for travel expenses. DAAD will also provide health insurance and accident and personal/private liability insurance. The host companies will contribute an additional stipend of €500 per month.
