Every year the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) provides 1.000, - Euro within the framework of the DAAD Prize. The award is given to one international student studying at UdK Berlin each year.
This year, the College of Music is awarding the DAAD Prize to Nik Bohnenberger from Luxembourg, who is studying Composition.
The award recognizes outstanding academic achievement and remarkable social or intercultural commitment. The candidates should be at the end of the Bachelor's degree program or in the Master's degree program, so that the achievement and involvements are already prominent; but it can also be awarded to recent graduate students and doctoral candidates. They may not be exchange students or students with a German university entrance qualification.
The presentation of this year's award took place in the concert hall of the UdK Berlin as part of the welcome day for the first semester students on October 17, 2023.
