DAAD Prize

The prize for the most outstanding academic achievements from a foreign student at a German university will be awarded at "Avete Academici", the university’s event for first-semester students.

This prize honors a foreign student at the University of Stuttgart who demonstrates very good academic performance and remarkable social engagement. It carries a 1,000€ monetary award.

Der German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is a joint institution of German universities. It promotes international academic collaboration using public funds, with special emphasis on dialogues between students and scientists. Students from abroad studying at German universities enrich the university community both culturally and academically. To honor outstanding international students, the DAAD annually provides funds to the universities to endow this prize.
