Student Caroline Kincer awarded the DAAD RISE Scholarship


The DAAD (the German Academic Exchange Service) has created exclusive programs for students in North America interested in gaining research experience in Germany.

We are very fortunate to announce an Ohio University student has been awarded a DAAD Rise scholarship. Biological Sciences major and sophomore, Caroline Kincer, will be taking her talents to Justus-Liebig-Universitat, Giessen, Germany this summer.

She will be doing research on mass spectrometry of bone cells and bone fragments in a cutting edge research project.

The DAAD Rise program allows students to work with PhD students with lab work on research projects in biology, chemistry, engineering, earth sciences and physics. The scholarship helps students cover living expenses and the partnered universities and/or research institutions provide housing assistance.

Kincer stated, “It has always been a dream of mine to go to Germany, so when I found out about this scholarship that was made specifically for undergraduate students to do research in Germany, it seemed like a perfect fit.”

She is looking forward to the experience of German culture—a culture and language she has always found fascinating.

“This opportunity means the world to me,” Kincer states, “This means getting to explore Europe and experience a culture I have always loved.”
