There is a special program for recruiting undergraduate interns from the US (NB: Students only need to be enrolled at a US university, they don't need to be US citizens).
RISE stands for Research Internships in Science and Engineering. RISE Germany offers undergraduate students from North American and British universities the opportunity to complete a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions. RISE Germany is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.

- DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses
- Host universities and institutes provide housing assistance and match students with Ph.D. student mentors
