DAAD Award 2017 for International Students at RWTH Aachen


The DAAD Prize awards academically excellent international students and doctoral candidates for their social and intercultural engagement.


RWTH Aachen University faculties, university organizations, RWTH student associations and the student union AStA can nominate international students and doctoral candidates who have particularly excelled academically and are also socially and interculturally active within or outside of the University.

The award amounts to 1,000 euros. International students and doctoral candidates who are advanced in their studies, have recently completed their studies (in the last three months) or are completing their doctoral studies at RWTH Aachen University can be nominated. Exchange students and students who have acquired a German university entrance qualification (Bildungsinländer) or students who have already received the DAAD Award cannot be considered.

Candidates for the award must be nominated by August 15, 2017. The nominations are to be sent via email to the International Office, Ms. Dominika Dudzik, including a curriculum vitae and a description of the academic (current acaemic record) and social / intercultural extracurricular achievements.

A selection committee will review the nominations and determine the winner. The prize will be awarded at the end of 2017.
