PACE encourages women to follow up their studies with a PhD.  We are aware of the fact that our society cannot afford to ignore the expert knowledge and potential of talented young women scientists.

Since 2008, the Zonta Club Paderborn awards a yearly prize to women PACE doctoral students with outstanding results in scientific research.

The Zonta Club Paderborn, a member of Zonta International, is an independent network of women professionals, who are in executive positions or run their own business. The club aims at improving women’s positions in all social groups.

Additionally, women researchers can join the Mentoring-program for female doctoral students run by the Paderborn University.
