For reviewers

To participate in the ALR University Award, participants should submit their student research project, thesis or dissertation as a whole.

In addition to the jury's evaluation, we need an initial professional assessment by the supervisor of the thesis. Therefore, we ask you to send us a short expert opinion. (see template in the download area).

You can use the template or provide the jury with a comparable expert opinion. Please hand over the expert opinion in a closed envelope to your student or send it directly to the ALR office:

Nds. Akademie Ländlicher Raum e.V.
c/o Nds. Association of Towns and Municipalities
Arnswaldtstraße 28
30159 Hanover

E-Mail: einreichung [at]

Please note that the deadline also applies to the expert reports: October 9, 2023
