Quick and Tiny: funding student research

Poster Quick and TinyThe Quick and Tiny project should appeal to students from all fields of research at the university. Student projects can be very diverse. The aim of the programme will be to give students at the CAU just as much diversity in funding needs and funding opportunities.

Information on the programme:

The aim of the programme is for students to be able to independently initiate and conduct research projects. An experienced mentor, who supports the students during the project term, is mandatory.

Individual projects conducted independently by students can receive up to €500 in funding. This can be used for such things as travel costs, conference expenses (proactive participation is essential), project-related equipment or training courses.  

To the application form for individual projects

Student group projects (max. 6 people) can receive up to €500 per project participant in funding. Several individual projects which can be combined together into one group would be preferable. A statement about each participant’s individual performance in the project must be clearly and distinctly defined. If several grant recipients take part in the same conference, then active participation of the participants in the project must be obvious. (Proactive participation)

To the application form for group projects


  • Student at the CAU (presentation of the matriculation certificate)
  • The project must be completed within 6 months
  • A report must be submitted at the latest 3 months after the end of the project
  • Supervision from an experienced mentor (university lecturer, research associate)
  • Staff positions cannot be financed
  • If a group submits a funding application, all members must fulfil the conditions above
  • A group spokesperson must be named for group grants
