BDB-Student Promotion Award, participation deadline: 31.01.23

The future of building and construction planning will be decisively shaped by those who are still studying at Germany's universities today. Students of architecture and civil engineering therefore need special support. This is one of the central concerns of the Association of German Builders, Architects and Engineers. In order to do justice to this, the BDB is again offering the "Student:innen-Förderpreis" in 2023.

The prize is endowed with a total amount of € 5,200. Entries can be submitted in the categories buildings, engineering structures, constructions and urban development.


Participate now until 31.01.23!
