Bertha Benz Prize for female engineers

The Bertha Benz Prize is awarded yearly to a young, female engineer whose work reflects the spirit of Bertha Benz, an enthusiastic supporter of the early automobile and a visionary thinker in her own right. From a pool of nominations submitted by various universities and research institutes, the Foundation selects one candidate whose dissertation holds the promise of future societal benefits. The prize, endowed with a €10,000 award, is presented in the course of the Bertha Benz lecture program.
