DAAD prize for exceptional achievement by international students
Every year, the “DAAD Prize for Exceptional Achievement by International Students”, a sum of 1,000 euros, is awarded to a non-German student for exceptional achievements and special social/intercultural engagement. The prize is awarded by HFBK President Prof. Martin Köttering during the opening of the Annual Exhibition.
All non-German Bachelor students having completed the 4th semester and all non-German Master students are eligible to apply for the DAAD Prize. An important selection criterion – in addition to your artistic work – is social or intercultural commitment. Applications and selection take place in January each year (next application deadline: 16.01.2024)
The first step is to apply by completing the online application form. After you have completed the form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the request to upload the following documents as one PDF into our cloud:
- a short CV/resume,
- -a letter of recommendation by an HFBK professor.
Please note that each HFBK professor can only propose one student for the DAAD Prize. Application deadline is 16 January 2024.
In the second part of the application process you will present a selection of your work to a committee. The presentation takes place on 25 January 2024 at HFBK. Please organize a room on your own (usually your classroom), prepare the selection of your work appealingly and – optional – indicate a preferred time in the application form.
