The study award is offered in the categories of master's and doctoral theses.

A jury of experts from science, business and politics selects five finalists per category (master's or doctoral theses). The jury determines the the runner ups and winners of the award based on the applications and pitches. In addition, the Quantum Futur Audience Award is presented for the best pitch.
