Doctoral prizes are awarded annually to one doctoral researcher from each of the three Graduate Centres of the Research Academy Leipzig; the award is given for an outstanding dissertation that was developed in the framework of the classes of the Graduate Centres. The award ceremony takes place at the Research Academy’s annual reception.

In addition to the doctoral prizes, the Katharina-Winscheid-Prize is also awarded annually. This prize is given to a doctoral researcher at the Academy, who completed an outstanding dissertation under special circumstances and who deserves recognition for promoting gender equality and family-friendliness in the research environment.
