The award jury
The award jury consists of external specialists with great expertise in areas relevant to the topics nominated. All jury members are selected by CliSAP’s Scientific Steering Committee (SSC).

The doctoral dissertation can be either in German or English. At the time of application, the completion of the doctoral thesis may not date back more than two years. The maximum age for participation is thirty years.
All doctoral supervisors, professors, and research group leaders are welcome to nominate doctoral dissertations.
