Why do we award this prize?

We have been awarding the DAAD Prize since 1995. With it we underline that each international student at the HAW Hamburg is a part of our university and a part of Germany. By studying here they leave a piece of themselves here and take a piece of Germany and the HAW Hamburg back to their home country. These students are ambassadors for Germany and future partners in business, science or politics.
