Once a year the mayor of Magdeburg, Dr. L. Trümper, invites the students of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the Magdeburg-Stendal College of Applied Sciences to attend a reception at City Hall. At this celebration, Dr. Trümper, along with university president Prof. Dr.-ing. J. Strackeljan, presented the Otto von Guericke Scholarship to a deserving student. This year, the OVG Scholarship has been awarded to Brazilian student Lauro Fialho Müller.

The city of Magdeburg and OVGU grant this award annually to an international student. It is intended to recognize an individual who has achieved exceptional academic success and, furthermore, committed themselves to community involvement in an impressive manner.
We are extremely happy that IBE student Lauro has been chosen to receive this award. Therefore, all ISP students were invited to attend the ceremony at Magdeburg City Hall, and several fellows of Lauro did so. A very nice gesture of recognition and friendship - thank you all!
