No fewer than 80 prizes are awarded each year to EPFL students, mainly to those who have completed their master degrees, but also to those who have obtained their bachelor.

EPFL rewards the best academic results and the best Projects of Master by awarding several prizes in its own name, but also on behalf of private companies or foundations.

There are four categories of prizes:

prizes for Bachelor students
prizes for Master students
prizes specific to each section
prizes awarded by EPFL to Bachelor or Master students

External prizes (not managed by EPFL) are also proposed to the EPFL students.

The majority of the prizes are awarded to the winners at the Magistral which takes place in October (with the exception of the research prizes). Some prizes are awarded at other times of the year and the dates are indicated in the respective prize information.

Some prizes are on application (max. 2 applications per student), others do not require registration. The conditions are indicated next to each price.
