RISE professional is designed for recent graduates, Master's and Ph.D students, and alumni of the RISE program (for undergraduates) in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences (geology), and engineering. Participants are matched with a German company, where they gain insight into the professional applications of science and engineering and develop practical skills. These internships expose participants to advanced research and provide the rare opportunity to learn about Germany from the inside.
The RISE professional program features a scholarship to help cover living expenses. Every scholarship recipient receives an additional stipend of 500 euros from the host company each month and a lump sum of 600 euros for travel expenses, as well as health insurance and accident and personal/private liability insurance.
Online registration is currently available, and the internship database is open. (Please note the deadline for the undergraduate RISE program was January 31, 2008.)
