On behalf of the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst e. V. (DAAD)), the Cologne Business School annually awards a prize to students who have made outstanding contributions to the support of international students in the past year. This year, the highly endowed prize was awarded to Franco Rafael Zegarra Garcia Godos, a master student from Peru, who distinguished himself through his outstanding academic achievements and social commitment at the Cologne Business School. “Especially in these times it is important that we build bridges instead of walls. I think it is great that the Cologne Business School recognizes intercultural commitment and I feel very honored by the DAAD award,” said Franco Rafael Zegarra.
During the award ceremony, Ximena Ancira Facio, Eun Kyoung Park, Minami Ojima, Nachaya Sriteeraviroj, Arianna Balbo and Alexander Orlov were also honoured with a DAAD STIBET Scholarship, as they supported the International Office with their special commitment in supporting international students and enriched international student life at the CBS.
