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.

The RISE-Globalink Research Internship is a competitive initiative that offers undergraduate students at Canadian universities in the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, earth science, and physics the opportunity to participate in a research project supervised by a doctoral student at a German university or institution.


The program is open to full-time undergraduates in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics, Earth Sciences, or Engineering (or a closely related field) who have completed at least two years of a four- or five-year program. This is a competitive opportunity - only top-ranked students are matched with projects.

Maximum Project Value

Approved recipients receive $6,000 toward travel and accommodations
