Student research projects
The Rectorate of the University of Münster allocates 50,000 euros a year to support student research projects. Individual projects can receive up to 5,000 euros in funding for a maximum of 12 months. Funding is awarded on the basis of an evaluation conducted by the Rectorate Committee for Research Affairs (RKF).
More important than enhancing one's personal academic qualifications, the projects should be innovative and academically informed, and thus be clearly distinguishable from one's doctoral, professional or academic pursuits. Such projects could include:
► Research projects which are initiated and carried out by students
► Student projects which encourage academic collaborations in Germany and abroad
► Seminars or conferences which students organise and carry out on their own
