Every year we grant our PhD Thesis Award for one of the summa cum laude PhD theses.
The award comes with a small package of prestigious "prizes", such as a cash cheque, a publication in the JGU booklet featuring all the awards of the university in that year and an invitation to the DIES ACADEMICUS, a ceremony with university VIPs and guest speakers. There is a coverage by the newspapers on this event. The GRK is issuing a fancy certificate on top of it all.
