Foundation Council Award of the Georg-August-University Göttingen Public Law Foundation

The Foundation Council Award aims to distinguish members of the Georgia Augusta for special ideas and activities in the fields of fundraising as well as science and publicity. An additional award is given for outstanding publications of young scientists of the University. The awards are each in the amount of 2,500 Euro and directed towards teachers, employees and students of the University.

The Foundation Council Award is given yearly in the following categories, if possible:

1st Category: Fundraising for the Foundation University Göttingen
This awards the most original fundraising idea. It is not the amount raised which is of importance here, rather the new source of income tapped.

2nd Category: Science and Publicity
With this award, the Foundation Council strives to support initiatives which convey scientific working processes and new knowledge to the public.

3rd Category: Outstanding Publications of Young Scientists
Articles accepted for publication in evaluated magazines or published books of young scientists (up to age 35) from all fields may be submitted for this award.

The Foundation Council may also present a special award, independent of these categories.

Award Amount
The Foundation Council Award is given in the amount of 2,500 Euro for each of the three categories.

The award is given exclusively to members (teachers, employees, students) of the Georgia Augusta and may be awarded to either one individual person or several people. The point in time at which the accomplishment was performed is relevant for determining university membership.
