This looks like a great opportunity to pursue summer research activities in Germany in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences & Engineering.
Undergraduate students work with research groups at universities and top research institutions across Germany for a period of 1.5 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. In 2010 we hope to have 300 interns.
The application period for undergraduate students from the US, Canada, and the UK, who wish to take part in an internship during summer 2010, is:
December 7, 2009 to January 31, 2010.
