What does the research funding look like?


  • With the X-Tutorials format, the Berlin University Alliance is funding research projects by students for students.
  • In order to hold an X-Tutorial, tutors receive a contract as a student assistant of 40 hours per month over a period of 12 months. However, the X-Tutorial can also be carried out alone, without co-teaching. In this case, the tutor receives a contract as a student assistant for 80 hours per month and also for a term of 12 months. The tutorial is carried out at the affiliated institution to which the project is institutionally linked and where it is supervised by a university lecturer. 
  • On top of that, candidates can apply for research-relevant material or travel funds up to a maximum of 750 euro.
  • To prepare the X-Tutors for their task, they are also invited to participate in a teaching qualification program. 
  • The Berlin University Alliance sponsors up to 8 X-Tutorials per call for proposals.
