German Exchange Programs Broaden 3 Tech Students’ Horizons

College can open so many doors that have endless possibilities behind them. This summer, three Michigan Tech students opened the door to Germany with Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) scholarships and the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX) program.

Jacob Braykovich, a fifth year materials science and engineering major, won a RISE scholarship, provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD.)

DAAD is the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation. Its programs help create goodwill and professional relationships to  help build a solid connection between Germany and North America. The scholarships are highly competitive, and the recipients are chosen by independent selection committees on the basis of outstanding academics and convincing project proposals/statements of purpose.
