Doctoral Award

Recognition for creative excellence: Every year, we award prizes for the best and most original doctoral theses in our six Research Fields.

In this way, we provide targeted support for young scientists and attract talented individuals to research in the long term.

The award winners receive a one-time prize of 5,000 euros. In addition, we support stays abroad with a travel and material cost allowance of 2,000 euros per month. This sum is granted for a period of up to six months.

Nominations are made by the Executive Boards of the Helmholtz Centers.
