Ethics & Sustainability Award
Every year the Dr. Juergen Meyer Foundation in cooperation with the Cologne Business School (CBS) grants a total of 4,000 Euros in prize money through the “Ethics and Sustainability Award”. The objective of the award is to promote the social and ethics achievements of students who demonstrate an enthusiasm for sustainability. Students can submit scientific papers, such as Bachelor and Master theses as well as social projects in the fields of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.
We are currently accepting applications for the Ethics & Sustainability Award 2019 until October 31st.
