Mitacs International—Undergraduate research opportunity with Germany

Greetings,

Mitacs and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) have partnered to offer the RISE-Globalink Research Internship (RISE-GRI), which offers undergraduate students at Canadian universities the opportunity to undertake research at eligible German institutions.

RISE-GRI pairs Canadian students with three-month projects supervised by PhD students in Germany.

  • Open to full-time undergraduates in biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, or engineering (or a closely related field) who have completed at least two years of a four- or five-year program
    • Students in Quebec enrolled in a three-year undergraduate degree must have completed at least one year of their university program
  • Applications accepted until December 15, 2017
  • Competitive opportunity — only top-ranked students are matched with projects
  • Projects must start between May 15 and July 9, 2018
  • Approved recipients receive $5,200 toward travel and accommodations

For questions about the application procedure, matching process, and internship placement, please contact rise-germany@daad.de. For any questions regarding the funding, please contact Mitacs International at international@mitacs.ca.

Mitacs would like to thank the Government of Canada and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for their support of the RISE-GRI Program.

Best regards,
