DAAD Award for outstanding achievement by a foreign student at a German university

The international students of our university enrich the university community in cultural, as well as academic regard.

In order to acknowledge this, each year the DAAD Award is awarded to international students who complete their studies in Germany and who distinguish themselves with specially high academic achievement and social or intercultural engagement.

Since 1995 the Brandenburg Technical University of Cottbus-Senftenberg has imparted the DAAD financial award at the annual opening ceremony of the academic year. Mr. Daniel Edward Huck was awarded with the DAAD Award 2019.
