The Commitment Award is a yearly prize for fascinating, new social projects. Willy Brandt himself represented social change, which was reflected in his social and political reforms. He believed that policy was worthless if policy makers did not have a specific purpose or goal in mind when creating it.
In the multicultural and diverse setting of the Brandt School, the Commitment Award seeks to give students and alumni the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned and to create new social initiatives here in Erfurt and around the world.
Then apply for the Commitment Award at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy!
Three winning projects will be chosen at the annual award ceremony in July, after an evaluation of the applications by a jury of experts. This jury thereby considers the questions: How charitable is the project? How much potential and sustainability is incorporated into the project? Will the prize money be used responsibly and effectively? Is the project likely to be actualized?
The best three projects will be awarded EUR 1,000 each which will then be spent to further develop and implement the project idea.
