I want to apply for a research scholarship. It is stated in the list of required documents that I have to write a 5 page complete research proposal. What is a research proposal?
A research proposal is the classic document a researcher has to establish. This document must include the object of your research, the state-of-the-art in the field, your research question, what you wish to investigate, what your methodology will be. How will your previous research contribute to your project as well as a timetable for your research in Switzerland? You should also state why a research in Switzerland will help your project.
