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

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Research Internships in Science & Engineering Professional (RISE Pro) Program offers up to 6 month research internships in science and engineering at German companies and non-university research institutions. RISE Pro scholars receive stipends from the host company and DAAD to help cover living expenses, health care, airfare, and optional German language courses.

Recent graduates, Master's 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.

More information on applying to DAAD RISE Pro at Drexel can be found on our Fellowships Resource Site. Access to the Fellowships Resource site is limited to the Drexel community; alumni can email to request access.
