The Gaudeamus International Composers Award is a European award issued by the Muziek Centrum Nederland (which encompasses the former Gaudeamus Foundation). The prize is awarded at an annual ceremony in the Netherlands to a young composer competing in the highly competitive Gaudeamus Music Week.

The Gaudeamus Foundation had held an annual music week of Dutch compositions since 1947, alternating with an international competition until 1959, from which time they became fully international (Anon 2001).
