The Faculty of Human Sciences awards the Beatrice-Edgell-Prize since 2006. In memory of a pioneer of the women's emancipation, this prize, awarded at the University of Wuerzburg, honours every year a young female researcher of the faculty who graduated summa cum laude. It is endowed with 1000 €.
The selection of the candidates takes place, on the basis of a recomendadtion of the Women's Representative (herself and two representatives), by the Faculty Board. In the future, this task should be assumed by the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Faculty of Human Sciences (Equal Opportunities Commission).
