The "EUF Europa Prize—donated by the University Council" honors individuals committed to a strong and democratic Europe. The 10,000 euro prize is funded by EUF University Council members, who donate the funding for their own expense allowances to support the award. With this prize, the EUF University Council expressly supports the university's focus on Europe within the context of the German-Danish border region. The prize is awarded every two years. Due to Corona, the awarding of the prize in 2020 was postponed to 2021.
