Top-level academics, junior researchers and students at the University of Münster are strongly encouraged to nominate others or apply for prestigious science and humanities awards.

We can help you with the nomination process.

In the following, you will find a selection of science prizes which are awarded on a regular basis.

* While some awards accept nominations from a single nominator, others require an endorsement from a third party, e.g. a professor, head of an institute, or the Rectorate itself. In case of the latter, please forward the nomination documents to the Rectorate via SAFIR.

Nominations with Rectorate endorsement

Please ensure that nominations which require Rectorate endorsement are prepared at least 4 weeks before the submission deadline.
