What students say

What Students Say

  • Living and performing research in Germany was a life changing experience for me. There is no better way to learn about yourself and grow than living alone in a foreign country.

    Rebecca Getman, U Berlin, Organic Chemistry

  • You’re probably asking yourself: Should I apply to the RISE program? Yes, you

    should definitely apply to the RISE program. I enjoyed my experience in and out of the lab. Stephen Brunner, U Hamburg, Physics

RISE professional participants in 2010 are saying:

  • “My decision to apply to the RISE Professional program has to be one of the best I have ever made. Coming to work for a German company has given me the opportunity to develop professionally and at the same time flourish personally through meeting new people.” (Ryan Thaner, Rice University, internship with Henkel in Duesseldorf)

  • “I know that in this increasingly global economy, international experience and cultural mastery are at a premium. The DAAD professional scholarship was the perfect way for me to attain these highly desirable skills and begin my career advancement in one of the world’s strongest, most dynamic economies.” (Benjamin Johnson, University of Iowa, internship with J. Wagner, Markdorf)
