UROP International (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program) at Germany’s RWTH Aachen University gives Sophomore and Junior (second and third year) applicants the chance to work closely with RWTH faculty on exciting new research projects while also broadening their cultural horizons through German language instruction, intercultural workshops, activities, and excursions. Students will have a wide selection of internships to choose from in the fields of Engineering, Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry, and many other departments. In the first two weeks of the program, students will engage in intensive German language instruction and also receive an introduction to research in Germany. The remainder of the program will shift its focus to the research internships while students continue language instruction twice a week.

There is no participation fee for this program, and after the application deadline (January 31st, 2011), up to 30 scholarships of € 1850 each will be awarded to qualified students to cover meals and housing in on-campus student dormitories. For further information, visit at
