GDCh Abitur Prize 2023

The GDCh Abitur Prize is an award from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for the best students in chemistry at high schools or comprehensive schools. The GDCh Abitur Prize is intended to strengthen interest in chemistry among the best students.

This is interesting for everyone who wants to start a scientific or engineering degree, not just for prospective students of chemistry, biochemistry, food chemistry or chemistry teachers. Each school may award one book awardee per year and has the right to offer two other high school graduates who are worthy of an award free one-year membership. The award is usually presented during graduation ceremonies.

Since 2005, 2,700 schools throughout Germany have participated in the awarding of the coveted award.

And that is the GDCh-Abitur award ...

The GDCh Abitur award currently consists of


  • a book (only possible for one awardee)
  • a certificate with a letter of congratulation from the GDCh managing director
  • a free GDCh membership for one year (upon request) and free Online receipt of Nachrichten aus der Chemie
