Awards and Scholarships
The event “SOWI in Dialogue (SOWI im Dialog)” is embedded in the “Faculty Day (Fakultätstag)”. Within the framework of “SOWI in Dialogue (SOWI im Dialog)”, the best master’s theses and doctoral theses of the immediately preceding academic year are presented. The award ceremony then takes place later on during the “Faculty Day”.
In the Hall of Fame you will find an overview of the award winners and the awarded theses of the last academic years.
The “SOWI Ranking” is one of the highlights of the “Faculty Day (Fakultätstag)”. The best graduates of the immediately preceding academic year are awarded. The ranking is based on all graduates of a Master’s Program at the School of Business, Economics and Social Sciences in the period under review. From these, the fifteen best graduates are filtered out, taking into account grade point average and duration of study. The prizes are kindly donated by Grazer Wechselseitige Versicherung AG.
In the Hall of Fame you will find an overview of the award winners of the last years.
A Merit Scholarship recognizes outstanding academic achievements made in an academic year. Merit Scholarships are announced in the summer months. The application for a scholarship is then possible after completion of the academic year. A merit scholarship may not be less than EUR 750 and not exceed EUR 1,500.
Information on the call for applications for the academic year 2022/23 can be found here.
Thesis/Dissertation Scholarships serve to support Master’s Theses and Doctoral Theses of students of degree programs that have not yet been completed and involve special costs (e.g. stay abroad, extensive literature search, empirical studies). The scholarship can only be applied for before starting the work. A scholarship may not be less than EUR 750 and not exceed EUR 3,600 for one academic year. Students with Austrian citizenship, foreigners with equal status and stateless persons are eligible to apply.
In the Doctoral Program, applicants may submit their applications in two different academic years.
