Education award

Education is a crucial topic of debate at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, which is one of a group of modern young universities offering a scientifically founded and practice-oriented range of courses.  We wish to highlight these qualities and their relevance through the Education Award of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences.

The award is given to personalities who use their popularity in an exceptional way to promote education and to be proactive sustainably in this field. The award winner is determined by a jury consisting of representatives from all the faculties, the university management, the staff and the students. In addition, VR-Bank Mittelfranken eG supports the activities associated with the Education Prize and appoints one representative to the jury.

Attached to the education prize is a monetary award which is released into the prize-winner’s education project. Thus, the concept of university funding was born. This project gives us as a university and above all, the members of this educational institution, the opportunity to set an important example. In addition, an auditorium at the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences is named after the current Education Award winner for a year.

Laureate 2018

Each year, the Education Prize focuses on a different theme. The theme "Football and Education" was selected for the 2018 World Cup year. The first prize winner was Philipp Lahm. The money from the university members went to an educational project of the Philipp Lahm Foundation. The award ceremony took place as part of a university World Cup event on 5 June. This exciting topic brought together the faculties of technology, economics and media with an all-day, cross-university event. The event was based on a table football tournament and was accompanied by an educational and football programme.

Prize-winner 2019

In 2019, the jury chose the theme "Culture and Education". The new Education Award Winner of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences will be announced in spring 2019 and will be honoured during the Cultural Evening in the summer semester.
