Award of Excellence
To promote the next generation of academics, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research honors the best doctoral graduates of each academic year with the “Award of Excellence” every year. The decisive criteria are an excellent and best-rated dissertation in compliance with the respective average duration of study and the degree in the previous academic year. The Rectorate of the University of Salzburg suggests up to two candidates for the award on the basis of the study results.
