Both awards are endowed with €1.500,00 each. They are are meant to acknowledge and reward researchers at the PhD and postdoc level who have stood out for their excellent achievements in research and their outstanding commitments to their respective disciplines.

To apply for yourself, you need to currently be a member of the GGS at either the postdoc or PhD candidate level - or you need to have been a member at either of those levels sometime in the past two years. The achievement to be awarded must also have taken place during this period and at JLU Giessen.
