For decades, RWTH Aachen University and proRWTH – Freunde und Förderer der RWTH Aachen e. V. have jointly awarded the Borchers Badge and the Springorum Commemorative Coin.


Please note

All award winners will receive notification of their award and the opportunity to purchase tickets by email and in the mail in July 2024.


The Borchers Badge is awarded to all individuals who pass their doctoral examination with "summa cum laude" (distinction). The RWTH association of friends, proRWTH, awards the Springorum Commemorative Coin to the best master's or state exam graduates (up to the top 10 percent of a year group) of all faculties.

All award winners from 2023 summer semester and 2023/24 winter semester are eligible to attend the Graduation Celebration in September 2024.

All participating award winners will receive a graduate cap and sash as a gift from the University. These caps and sashes stand out from those of the other graduates as they are a different color (orange tassel). The caps and sashes will be handed out at the distribution stand in the proRWTH area from 10:30am to 11:30am upon presentation of your ticket.

If you have any questions about your award, please contact the via email.
