Exploring Their Research Interests

Two University of Missouri students will explore their research interests in Germany this summer through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) program. Both Emma McDougal and Lara Stefani will have the opportunity to develop their research passions after recently being named DAAD RISE recipients.

“Mizzou students are chosen for this award every year, and it’s one of best ways for them to take their research skills to the next level,” said Erik Potter, program manager of the MU Office of Global and National Fellowships. “It’s also an excellent opportunity for students to reflect on what motivates their research interests in the first place and to test those ideas in a new cultural environment.”
