The PROFIN prize is awarded every year to students who have made outstanding effort in supporting the integration of foreign fellow-students.

  • The prize was awarded for the first time in 2009 as part of a DAAD supported project. When the DAAD funding came to an end, the Friends of Furtwangen University took over the financing of the prize.
  • The prize includes prize money in the amount of €500 and is awarded during the International Festival in Furtwangen.
  • The prize is awarded to students who have shown extraordinary support for their fellow students from abroad.

The choice of prizewinner is made exclusively by recommendations and in consultation with the university executive board, the faculties and the International Center.
