Allocation Commission

The emergency aid grants will be allocated by a commission consisting of five students . A minimum of two have to be women and no more than two shall belong to the same faculty (by major). This way, we want to make sure that the Allocation Commission resembles the Student Body as well as possible, despite of its small size.
To ensure cooperation with the rest of the Constituted Student Body at least two members shall be members of the Student Council.
