Award for Schools:
Melissantum Award

Award for concepts for vocational and study orientation

More than 300 years ago the scholar Johann Gottfried Gregorii, called Melissantes, said: "Everybody should explore his own inclination, suitability and efficiency, compare them with the professions in order to find the suitable one among them. A concept that is still highly topical today. The IfT Institute for Talent Development annually sponsors the Melissantum School Award which honors exemplary new and proven career orientation concepts in schools. The Board of Trustees for School-Business Policy decides on the awarding of the prize.

Once a year, all schools that implement an outstanding concept for career and study orientation have a chance of winning the prize. The theme of the 2019 call for entries focuses on MINT in the vocational and study orientation of students.
