DAAD Preis

Are you an international student with outstanding achievements and have been involved in social or intercultural commitment? If so, then you might be eligible to win 1000 EUR!

Every year the Uni Halle and the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) award a prize to a foreign student or doctoral student, who has shown throughout his or her studies to have outstanding achievements and social or intercultural commitment.

The requirements in order to be eligible to apply and win the prize are the following:

Students must have acquired their university entrance qualification at a school abroad (this includes German schools abroad) or they have supplemented school qualifications abroad with a German Studienkolleg.

The prize will be awarded to only one person, and it consists of a total of 1,000 EUR. The prize winner will be selected by the University Awards Committee of Martin-Luther-Univeristät Halle-Wittenberg and the award ceremony will be in May 2022.
