Current call for proposals

Current call for proposals for the GDCh Graduation Award (formerly GDCh Absolventenpreis)

In 2024, the German Chemical Society (GDCh) will be offering a prize for the 18th time for the best graduates of chemistry-related training courses such as chemical-technical assistants (CTA), chemical laboratory assistants or chemical engineering technicians. Graduates from neighboring disciplines such as PTA and BTA can also receive the prize.

Each school is allowed to award one awardee per year and has the right to offer two further award-worthy graduates a one-year, free membership in the GDCh. As a rule, the prize is awarded when the graduation certificate is presented.

The final prize includes a certificate, a book prize and the opportunity to become a free member of the GDCh and the GDCh vocational education working group for one year.

The Working Group Vocational Education represents the interests of non-academic GDCh members. The aim is to bring together all people who are interested in company and school education in the chemistry sector and its related fields, and to create a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences. Technical suggestions on the topic of “vocational education” should also be given and the content further developed ( ). The free, one-year membership in the Working Group Vocational Education requires membership in the GDCh.

For 2024, teachers are called upon to once again select their best graduates in their year and nominate them for the graduation prize no later than three weeks before the graduation certificate is handed over.

The school and the awardee can only register online using the registration link on this website. Registrations via email cannot be considered.
