RISE worldwide starts its tenth year! In the past 9 years almost 2200 German undergraduate students interned abroad as research assistants. And once more Research groups from all over the world that are interested in hosting a German research assistant in the summer of 2019 are invited to submit project offers to RISE worldwide.

How does RISE worldwide work?

In this program research groups, laboratories and doctoral students can apply to host a motivated and well-qualified 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, computer science, medicine or a closely related field and will receive a DAAD scholarship to help cover living expenses and travel costs.

Internship projects can be submitted online at

RISE Worldwide

from September 1, 2018 to October 15, 2018.

Between November 1, 2018 and December 15, 2018 the 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.
