Brandt School Universität Erfurt

Commitment Award 2018

The deadline for this year’s Commitment Award proposal applications is quickly approaching – don’t miss your chance to apply! You have until May 14 to submit your proposals via the “Commitment Award” course on Campus.

The Commitment Award has been awarded yearly since 2012 to students of the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy to help them implement real social initiatives, both locally and globally. Over the last six years, the Commitment Award has reached to Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America via Social Entrepreneurship Projects initiated by Brandt School students. More than 30,000 Euros have been awarded to 18 projects to help turn the award winners’ visions into reality.

Three awards are granted per year. Prizes are sponsored by the Engagementpreis Foundation:

  • 1st Prize: 2500 EUR
  • 2nd Prize: 1500 EUR
  • 3rd Prize: 1000 EUR


A jury of experts will carefully evaluate applications and consider aspects such as the charitability of the project, the potential and sustainability of the project as well as how realistic the implementation is and if the prize money will be used effectively and responsibly. Applications will be accepted until May 14, 2018 – late applications will not be accepted. You can access the application documents via the Campus Platform.

The 2018 Commitment Award Ceremony will take place on July 12, 2018, starting at 18:00 hrs.
