GDCh Abitur Prize

GDCh Abitur Prize 2024

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 consolidate interest in chemistry among the best students.

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

Since 2005, 2,800 schools across Germany have taken part 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
