Research Internships in Science and Engineering Program
Graduate Student Summer Internship Opportunities
INTEL- India and HP-India
Administered by ORAU
The Research Internship in Science and Engineering (RISE) is limited to the top graduate students in a broad array of science and engineering disciplines. You will have the opportunity to conduct research at one of the top national laboratories, federal research centers, academic research institutes, or private R&D laboratories in India.  Each internship is from 3-6 months and all selected participants will receive housing (or housing allowance), roundtrip transportation to India, and monthly stipend.
  • U.S. citizens only
  • Open to graduate students in science, technology, engineering and medical disciplines enrolled at a regionally accredited institution of higher education
Twelve specific projects are listed below for HP-India and Intel-India. Students interested in the opportunities below should submit an application by March 27, 2009. Visit our website for application and contact information. Please denote on your application to which position you are applying. (Applications will also be accepted for other areas of research until March 27.)

The Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) manage the RISE program. RISE provides opportunities for American graduate students to conduct research in India and for American institutions to host Indian graduate students and faculty in the U.S.
India is a worldwide leader in science and technology. This historically rich and culturally diverse nation is one of the fastest-growing centers of global technological progress and is home to one of the largest technically trained workforces in the world. U.S. students and host institutions participating in the prestigious RISE program will have the opportunity to gain invaluable perspective into the world of international research, as well as to develop lasting research partnerships with leading Indian researchers and institutions.
