Schön Nobel Awards for Academic Excellence

Schön Nobel Awards for Academic Excellence

Webster Vienna is proud to have the Dr. Walter Schön family as the generous donor of the Schön Nobel Awards for Academic Excellence for over 30 years.

Each year at graduation, the most accomplished students from the undergraduate, graduate and MBA programs as well as the student with the best thesis are awarded this monetary reward. Recipients of this award are selected by the Vienna Honors Committee based on specific criteria. In addition, the Schön family also bestows awards for Teacher of the Year and Excellence in Teaching. The faculty recipients are chosen by the students.

If you would like to set up an award in your or someone else’s name to honor deserving students, alumni, faculty or staff, please contact us at info@webster.ac.at or +43-1-269 92 93-0.
