Public Tender for SEPAWA-Awards


SEPAWA [Soap, Perfume, Cosmetic and Detergent Experts Association] has set up a program in order to further the advancement of junior scientists in the particular fields related to the association. Up to eight awards will be granted to excellent junior scientists.

Up to three of them to students with a bachelor’s degree, one first prize (2,000 euros), one second prize (1,000 euros) and one third prize (500 euros).

For graduates with a master’s degree there will also be three prizes awarded: one first (2,500 euros), one second (1,500 euros), and one third (1,000 euros).

Furthermore, two outstanding PhD thesis will be awarded with 3,000 euros each.

The subjects of the papers ought to be application-oriented and in line with the fields of the SEPAWA. The association, whose purpose it is to encourage the practical and scientific education and further training of all those working in the fields of detergents and cleansers, cosmetics, perfumery as well as chemical-technical applications, is thus providing a great incentive for a scientific examination of its subject areas.

Continuous, efficient studies, outstanding grades as well as quality and relevance of the supplied thesis are the basic qualifications for a SEPAWA Award.

Comparable qualifications also apply for the PhD Thesis Award. Needless to say, for this award, however, content and originality of the thesis play an additional and particularly important role in the evaluation.

Please send your application* as well as your curriculum vitae, report cards, final grades, thesis papers (fully comprehensive work completed in order to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Master of Arts degree or a doctorate) and any further supporting documentation (publications, lectures, internships, scholarships) to the First Chairman of the SEPAWA Awards Committee by June 16th, 2017.
