DAAD RISE worldwide 2021 – Internship Funding Opportunity

After the successful completion of eleven years of the programme “Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) Worldwide” in which DAAD funded more than 2500 German students to intern as research assistants worldwide, we are pleased to announce the new call for the year 2021. Kindly refer to the attached information flyer for your ready reference.

Research groups, laboratories and doctoral students from India can apply to host a motivated and well-qualified undergraduate student from Germany as a research intern to assist with a proposed project in India. Students participating in this programme come from the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, computer science, medicine, or a closely related field, and receive a DAAD scholarship to help cover living expenses and travel costs.

For detailed information about RISE Worldwide programme, pls. visit DAAD’s website: www.daad.in

Internship projects can be submitted on the RISE portal through Online Application from September 1, 2020 to October 15, 2020.

The database opens for the German students in November 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.
Please forward the programme information to the interested networks of academics, alumni and anyone else who might be interested. Please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Pooja Midha at midha@daaddelhi.org if you have further questions.
