This year, IDA is one of the finalists of the "Welcome"- prize of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The BMBF awards this prize to outstanding student initiatives of the DAAD-"Welcome"- programme that funds IDAs activities. Among 50 applicants, we have now been chosen as one of the top three initiatives in Germany.
The prize is targeted at initiatives that can serve as a model for the support of refugees and international students. Although we still don't know, whether we'll come in first, second or third at the awarding ceremony in Berlin on July 5th, we are very happy to be nominated. Keep your fingers crossed for us, we'll keep you posted.
PS: This nomination would not be possible without your support and engagement! Therefore we want to thank everyone, who has supported us and made our activities work. Dear helpers, supporters and volunteers: YOU ARE GREAT!
