Which documents must be submitted?


  1. Application form (online) form with details about the applicant, about the research project, and about the institutional link. Please fill out the application form online.

  2. Project outline (maximum three pages, additional page containing bibliography if required) with a description of the planned research project, time schedule, assessment of potential participating students, and and ideas for possible collaborations with other actors or institutions. The notes on the project outline provide more detailed information on how the outline should be structured and what to look for in each block.

  3. Optional - Application for material or travel funds up to a maximum of 750 euro; a prerequisite for the approval is that the funds are necessary for carrying out the project or would clearly enhance the research of the X-Tutorial. The notes on applying for material or travel resources provide more detailed information on what can be applied for and what needs to be taken into account here.

  4. Letter of support provided by a subject-specific mentor: To ensure that the X-Tutorial can be implemented without major problems or setbacks, professional support is helpful. Applicants should therefore look for a professor who will support the project in the run-up but also during the X-Tutorial. It is important to note that supervision can only be provided by professors (including junior professors or deputy professors). Applicants should therefore ask the supervising professor to provide them with a letter of support. More detailed information on what should be included in the letter can be found in the notes on letters of support.

  5. Form - Proof of institutional affiliation: In order for the X-Tutorial to be offered as a research tutorial for students, an institutional affiliation is necessary. This affiliation is ensured by a professor who is informed about the application and who agrees with his or her signature to support the project in organizational matters (e.g. room allocation, technology) and to supervise the project during the one-year funding period. For this purpose, the institutional affiliation form must be filled out and signed.
