Sarojini Naidu – Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Award

The annual Sarojini Naidu – Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Award was constituted by ISG to encourage interactive participation of Indian Students either individually or through the various Indian Student Associations in the ISG Portal. The award is to be conferred to the best association/individual who has contributed in a special way to assist other Indian students in Germany or had been instrumental in their integration into the German society. In 2016, the award was jointly awarded to Indian students association from TUHH and Aachen.
