Prizes for doctoral theses and dissertations

The “Bund der Freunde” has been awarding prizes for outstanding doctoral theses and dissertations (EUR 1,500 each) since 1979. The proposals are made – alternatingly – by the Deans of the individual faculties.  


The prize-winners are awarded in the course of the Annual General Meeting in December, which – according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung – is “almost a social event”.
