All RISE programs are directed at students in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, earth sciences, and physics. RISE programs are based on the idea of offering highly motivated students internships and funding for summer research opportunities in Germany. Different RISE program options are available depending on your academic status and your nationality. The RISE Program is for undergraduates enrolled at Canadian, U.S. and U.K. universities. The RISE professional program is for graduate and PhD students, RISE program graduates, and former DAAD scholars from the U.S. or Canada. German students can apply for RISE worldwide.
