DAAD Rise Germany Internships

The OSU Undergraduate Fellowship Office would like to help CBC students with the DAAD-RISE program.

RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) Germany offers an incredible opportunity for sophomores and juniors to participate in a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions.

What is the DAAD-RISE program?

Students are matched with a German host university or institute according to their area of interest (chemistry, biology, etc). DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses. Host universities, universities of applied sciences (UAS), and institutes provide housing assistance. UAS will also match students with Ph.D. student mentors or researchers. Knowledge of German language is NOT REQUIRED. The working language will be English.

Who is eligible?

Undergraduate students who:

  • are currently enrolled in biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, earth sciences, or engineering (or a closely related field)
  • have completed at least 2 years of a undergraduate degree program by the time of the internship placement
  • can prove that they will maintain undergraduate status after the internship has taken place

Because of these eligibility requirements, usually current sophomores and juniors apply.

How can I learn more?

Begin with the DAAD-RISE website. Register in the RISE Germany Internship Database by December 15. Identify your potential interests and reach out to fellowships@osu.edu for help with your application.
