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 a notification of their award and the opportunity to purchase tickets by postal mail and email in July 2023.


The Borchers Badge is awarded to all individuals who pass their doctoral examination with "summa cum laude" (distinction). The Springorum Commemorative Coin is awarded to the best Master's, Diplom, Staatsexamen, and Magister graduates (up to the top 10 percent of a year) of all faculties.

All award winners from summer semester 2022 and winter semester 2022/23 are eligible to attend the Graduation Celebration on September 2, 2023.

Please note that due to the restrictions resulting from the pandemic, the awards cannot be presented on the Graduation Celebration grounds this year. You will only receive your award separately by postal mail.

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

We are highly dedicated to creating an unforgettable experience for you and your family at the 2023 Graduation Celebration. However, please be aware that the University may be forced to adapt the event concept at short notice due to the Corona Protection Ordinance – CoronaSchVO – which will be in effect in September.
