Since 2019 awards for the Bachelor certificates will be given under the premise, that the Bachelor score achieved in the regular period, is 1.5 or better. A selection of the best graduates will be still performed within this score range.

All awardees receive an annual subscription of the journal “Spektrum der Wissenschaft”. The ceremony takes places during the awarding of the Dr. Barbara Mez-Starck prizes for the best master graduates.
