Research Internships in Science and Engineering

The Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) has launched Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) to create unique opportunities for science, technology, engineering and medical students from the United States to undertake internships in national laboratories, federal research centers, academic research institutes, and private R&D laboratories in India.

The objectives of the internships are to provide students with unique opportunities to live and work in an international context, to gain practical experience, and acquire professional skills. Internships are envisaged as a source of mutual cultural and professional enrichment for both the interns and their host institutions.

Internships are open to U.S. Citizens who are Ph.D and Master students in science, engineering, technology and medical disciplines and are currently enrolled at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in U.S.

The duration of the internships should be 3-6 months. The cost for the internship covers return airfare, monthly stipend and accommodation allowance. However, the overseas travel insurance is expected to be borne by the selected intern.
