Prizes and Awards at the Academies

In order to support and promote early-stage researchers in the sciences and humanities and to honour outstanding contributions to research or lifetime achievements, the German academies award numerous prizes, medals and scholarships. Irrespective of the prize money that goes with them, these awards are very special marks of honour. Award ceremonies usually take place at the public anniversary celebrations of the academies.
