RISE Worldwide 2020


RISE Worldwide starts the eleventh year! In the past 10 years more than 2000 German undergraduate students interned abroad as research assistants.

How does RISE Worldwide work?

In this program research groups, laboratories and doctoral students can apply to host a motivated and wellqualified student from Germany. The German intern will assist in research and lab work for the proposed project. The students have academic training in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, or a closely related field and will receive a DAAD scholarship to help cover living expenses and travel costs.

What are the benefits of the program?

Researchers in science and engineering profit both professionally and personally: They receive assistance with their research projects, strengthen their ties to Germany and extend their knowledge of the German culture, research landscape and higher education system.
PhD students are especially encouraged to participate because they in particular can benefit by learning how to be a mentor to younger students. RISE Worldwide offers an excellent opportunity to establish academic partnerships with universities in Germany or to intensify
already existing transatlantic networks.
German undergraduate students in science and engineering are exposed to advanced research work while gaining practical experience in their respective fields during the summer. They get the chance to develop intercultural competence and improve their language skills. Moreover, the intensive lab work and leisure time spent together with mentors, colleagues and other interns may establish long-lasting friendships.

Submission of project proposals: September 1st, 2019 through October 15th, 2019
Terms of the internship: 6 weeks to 3 months in summer 2020 earliest starting date: June 1st, 2020
