Ludwig Biermann Award

The Ludwig Biermann Award is an annual prize awarded by the German Astronomische Gesellschaft to an outstanding young astronomer.[1] The prize is named in honour of the German astronomer Ludwig Biermann and was first awarded in 1989, three years after his death. Nominees for the award must be under the age of 35.[2] The monetary value of the award is 2500 €, and it is intended to enable the awardee to make one or more research visits to an institute of their choice. Usually, only a single prize is awarded per year, but in a few cases, two prizes have been awarded.[3]
