Prizes awarded in Leibnizhaus

They stand out for their excellent achievements: students and graduates of Leibniz Universität Hannover were awarded the President's Prize for Excellent Students 2018 on Tuesday 6th February. Prof. Dr. Elfriede Billmann-Mahecha, vice president for teaching and academic programmes, and at the same time sponsor of the event, presented certificates. "Committed, critical and motivated students are the most important element in a lively and continually evolving university. We are proud of you as this year's prize-winners;" said the vice president at the ceremony in the Leibnizhaus.

The President's Prize for Excellent Students has been awarded annually since 1995. Every year - traditionally at the end of the winter semester - particularly good students can look forward to a certificate and € 250 in prize money; the awards are financed by the Christian Kuhlemann Foundation, represented by the Friends of the University. Leibniz Universität is responsible for the ceremony.

A total of 20 students from all 9 faculties were selected. This year, the students decided to donate ten per cent of their prize money for social causes. Prizes were awarded to: Stefanie Rötemeier, Faculty of Architecture and Landscape Sciences; Eileen Wystub, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science; Sönke Südbeck and Tobias Nießen, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Felix Lücke and Lisa Marie Gruhl, Faculty of Law; Mathias Tantau, Mathäus Winkler and Alexander Oleff Faculty of Mechanical Engineering; Simon Brennecke, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Chris Daniel Rosendahl, Anne Schmitz and Stephanie Mittrach, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Nadine Christine Golenia, Henriette Lange, Ricarda Darm and Armin Wühle, Faculty of Humanities, Lukas Bertram, Julia Meyer und Marc Alexander Kühn, Faculty of Economics and Management.
