Belmont student Andrey Borisyuk, a neuroscience major, has been awarded a RISE internship for this summer. RISE is a summer internship program for undergraduate students from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering. It offers unique opportunities for undergraduate students to work with research groups at universities and top research institutions across Germany for a period of two to three months during the summer. RISE interns are matched with doctoral students whom they assist and who serve as their mentors. The working language is English. All scholarship holders receive stipends from the DAAD to help cover living expenses, while partner universities and research institutes provide housing assistance.
RISE internships were first offered in 2005 to applicants from the United States and Canada. In 2009 the program was extended to the United Kingdom. Following the first intake of around 100 students in 2005, the number of participants has increased steadily. In 2011 as many as 306 candidates (out of 1,600 applicants) were awarded an internship.
