“Deutscher Studienpreis” for outstanding dissertations [deadline: 01 Mar 2021]

Annually the Körber Foundation is awarding the “Deutsche Studienpreis” for outstanding dissertations (magna or summa cum laude) in all disciplines.

In addition to scientific excellence a specific significance for the society is of particular importance. However, the focus is not necessarily lying on the economic exploitability but on the macrosocial benefit of scientific results.

In total €100,000 are available including three outstanding awards (each € 25,000).

Eligible to apply for the deadline on March 1, 2021 are all PhD graduates who have received their PhD in 2020.

Further information on the requirements and application process can be found here (only in German).
