Every other year, the Stifterverband (Donors’ Association for the Promotion of the Sciences and the Humanities in Germany) grants this 50,000 EUR science award on the recommendation of the Leibniz Association. The award recognises outstanding research of particular social relevance and high practicability and is designed to showcase the benefits of science to the general public.
With its annual Dissertation Award, the Leibniz Association recognises an outstanding doctoral thesis from a Leibniz institution. The award is granted in the Humanities and Social Sciences as well as in the Natural Sciences and Technological Sciences.
The Leibniz Association grants its annual Leibniz Award for Apprentices to an individual who has distinguished him- or herself by outstanding achievements during the apprenticeship and in the final examinations.
