One World Award

Together with our sister College in Pune, India, UWC Robert Bosch College received an OWA Grand-Prix award in 2017. Given every three years by the organic food producer Rapunzel and the international umbrella organization IOFAM, the One World Award recognizes initiatives that work towards ecological, economic and social improvements for a more just and sustainable world. To support their continued work, the honorees also receive prize money totaling €45,000.

Aurora Humanitarian Prize for UWC Schools und Colleges

UWC Robert Bosch College is the 2017 winner of the Aurora Humanitarian Prize for UWC Schools and Colleges. Together with representatives from 15 other UWC schools, students of our College applied for the prize, submitting their project ‘DoGood’, an online platform to support the integration of refugees in Germany as well as the work of social organizations worldwide. Through this prize, they received €4,000 to support their project in cooperation with AKGG and the social welfare organization Der Paritätische in Hesse, Germany.


A joint project: the work in the School Garden is coordinated by gardener and pedagogue Eva-Maria Schüle, who is supported by UWC students and Freiburg volunteers.

School Garden Initiative: “Gardening Makes a School”

In fall 2016, the UWC Robert Bosch College monastery garden was officially recognized by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports as well as the Ministry of Agriculture and Consumer Protection in Baden-Württemberg. Of the 153 schools to apply for the Schulgarteninitiative 2015/16, our garden was one of several to receive the highest possible ranking and has been designated as an exemplary school garden.
