2024 DAAD Award for Outstanding Achievements of International Students

The DAAD award honours one foreign student with outstanding academic achievements and exceptional social or intercultural commitment.

The candidate (no guest or exchange students) should usually be on an advanced level of his/her Bachelor's (at least second year) or Master's (at least second semester) degree. Postgraduates and PhD students can also be nominated.

The DAAD award is not a research award and it is not aimed at honouring a PhD project. It shall mainly be allocated to students or graduates who master their studies in their own right.

The award cannot be split up among several students. The prize money is 1,000 Euros.

The faculties have the right of nomination. Please nominate a qualified candidate by delivering a meaningful explanatory statement until 12 August 2024.

 

The nominations have to be submitted to the International Office. Further details will be given by the International Office: Ms. Böhning (Phone 67-58429) or Dr Genetzke (Phone 67-58514). Please check telephone numbers in the LSF as changing are pending.
