What is the DAAD Prize?
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) awards funds to universities each year as part of the DAAD Prize for outstanding academic achievements by international students. The award also includes prize money of €1,000 and can only be won by individual students. Candidates studying at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena wanting to apply must fulfil the following criteria:
Are you a suitable candidate? The application form is available from April until 31 May 2021. Please send your complete application (application form + transcript of records + letter of reference) no later than by 31 May 2021 to the address stated in the all for applications (date of receipt).
The commission responsible for granting study-related allowances will examine applications first and invite the most promising candidates to an interview (in June). The commission, chaired by the Vice-President for Learning and Teaching, is furthermore composed of four representatives of the faculties and one representative of the International Office.
The winner will be announced in one of the University’s news releases.
