The Adelbert von Chamisso Prize (German Adelbert-von-Chamisso-Preis) is a German literary award established in 1985, given to a work whose author's mother tongue is not German, as was the case for Adelbert von Chamisso. It is offered by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.[1][2]

In addition to the main prize with a prize money of 15,000 €[2]), one or more promotional prizes ("Förderpreise") with a prize money of 7,000 €[2]) and sometimes an honorary award ("Ehrengabe") are given.

The prize was created by Harald Weinrich.[1][2]

In 2016, the Robert Bosch Stiftung announced that he prize will be ceased, saying it had its original objective thoroughly fulfilled.[3]
