The Mayo Alumni German Speaking Group awards an annual  prize of 1.000 € to a young scientist or physician who studied at Mayo Clinic for at least 12 months, and returns to Germany, Switzerland or Austria. The prize is awarded at the group’s annual meeting, and is made possible through a generous gift from Dr. Olga Juchems, in honor of her husband and Mayo Clinic Alumnus, Rudolf Juchems, who passed away in 2008.
