Program Description

RISE is a summer internship program for undergraduate students from the United States, Canada and the UK in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering. It offers unique opportunities for undergraduate students to work with research groups at universities and top research institutions across Germany for a period of 2 to 3 months during the summer. RISE interns are matched with doctoral students whom they assist and who serve as their mentors. The working language will be English. All scholarship holders receive stipends from the DAAD to help cover living expenses, while partner universities and research institutes provide housing assistance.

RISE Pro is for graduate students interested in gaining career-building research and work experience in a German company involved in science and engineering.

THE OFFICIAL APPLICATION WILL NOT OPEN UNTIL DECEMBER 2012. Applications are made only through the RISE website; the deadline is January 31, 2013. This posting is for informational purposes only, as RISE is very popular among our IIT students.

However, if you wish to apply and want to learn more about the program, please contact Ashley Sinclair at to ask for information about current and past RISE interns.
