Graduate Students´ Awards

HELENA Graduate Student Award – List of Laureates since 2010

The Graduate Students’ Award has been launched in recognition of graduate students’ outstanding scientific achievements and exceptional commitment in Environmental Health. The Graduate Students’ Award is supported by the Helmholtz Graduate School Environmental Health (HELENA) and the Association of the Friends and Supporters of Helmholtz Zentrum München (VdFF). The awards will be granted for three outstanding dissertations in the fields of Health and Environmental Research. They are endowed with € 1,500 each.
