DAAD Research Internships in Science and Engineering Professional (RISE Pro)

Deadline: December 15 

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Research Internships in Science & Engineering Professional (RISE Pro) Program offers up to 3 month research internships in science and engineering at German companies. RISE Pro scholars receive stipends from the host company and DAAD to help cover living expenses, health care, airfare, and German language courses (optional).

Recent graduates, Master and PhD students from North American universities in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, computer science, earth science 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.

For more information, visit the DAAD RISE Pro website and the Fellowships Resource page on DAAD RISE Pro. Access to the Fellowships Resource site is limited to the Drexel community; alumni can email to request access.
