Promote international cooperation in research together with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

RISE Worldwide is starting the next round: For summer 2020 we are again asking for internship offers giving German undergraduate students the possibility to intern worldwide. Internship projects can be submitted online from September 1 to October 15, 2019 at

Research groups, laboratories and doctoral students from all over the world can apply to host a motivated and well-qualified student from Germany as a research intern to assist with a proposed project. Students participating in this program come from the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, computer science, medicine, or a closely related field, and receive a DAAD scholarship to help cover living expenses and travel costs. Duration of internships can be 6 weeks to 3 months in summer 2020.

Between November 1 and December 15, 2019 the internship database opens for the German students and each student may apply for up to three internship projects. The prospective hosts are then asked to provide DAAD with their quality assessment of the applications for their projects via an online ranking procedure.
