UA7 Study & Internship Program (SIP) in Germany

Provides support for study at a German university, followed by an internship (including applied science research).

Since 2006, the Study and Internship Program (SIP) has enabled highly qualified undergraduates from U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities to experience the German approach to hands-on education at a member of UAS7, a consortium of Germany's top universities of applied sciences. SIP students spend a semester studying at a UAS7 campus and a semester interning.

Internships are offered either at a UAS7 campus laboratory (2 to 6 months) or off campus at private companies, research institutes, or non-profit organizations.

Selected students receive a full tuition waiver for both semesters (enrollment is also required during the internship to maintain residency in Germany) and the benefits provided to exchange students at the host UAS. Successful SIP applicants are eligible for a DAAD Scholarship or a UAS7 Travel Scholarship.
