The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports the engineering sciences particularly in glass, ceramic, stone, and earths as well as interdisciplinary projects in the areas of technology, economy, and the humanities. Here you will find a detailed description of our activities in funding research.
Since 2004 the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports various research projects at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. Until 2021 the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is supporting two dissertations that address refractory materials. The foundation had previously backed two other research projects at the university with doctoral scholarships.
With its seat in Munich, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports the engineering sciences: Since October 2018 it awards thirty Deutschlandstipendien per year at the Technical University of Munich, of which two-thirds will be for Chemical Engineering (B.Sc. + M.Sc.), Engineering Science (B.Sc.), and Mechanical Engineering and Management (M.Sc.).
Two postgraduates are researching binding agents in high-temperature applications at the Institut für Integrierte Naturwissenschaften, University of Koblenz-Landau. The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is supporting the project for a period of three years ending in April 2020.
If you are interested in receiving funding, please check whether your planned project
