```Hi Jens,

f = {f1, f2, f3};
a = {a1, a2, a3};

Apply @@@ Thread[{f, {#} & /@ a}]

I guess that is supposed to be humorous, but I hope it is never the first
example in a Functional Programming class! It depends a lot on bracket
construction and even when I try to deconstruct it, it certainly doesn't
appear as an obvious path to the solution.

{#} & /@ a
Apply @@@ %

But, darn if it doesn't work!
