  1. The first application round of TTE-Fund in 2018 is open!

The first application round of TTE-Fund in 2018 is open! The fund may grant financial aid for all AYY members and the association within it. TTE-Fund supports visible activities that reach for the stars and make other people excited.

You can apply for grants from TTE-Fund in two ways: through the application rounds arranged approximately three times a year and through the continuous application period which is open during the academic terms. During the continuous application period, you can apply for the grants with the maximum of 2000€, whereas the amount of project grants during the actual application rounds is not limited.

The first application round of 2018 will end on Sunday, 21 Jan 2018, at 11.59pm. Instructions for the application and its attachments are available on the website of the fund at http://tter.ayy.fi/.

  1. Changes to the AYY Association Regulation

The AYY Representative Council decided at their meeting 7/2017, held on the 2nd of November, to change the stipulations in the association regulation regarding the number of members in associations and the responsibility of keeping the Student Union up to date on the number of members. The exact requirement, 7 members, previously only concerned associations on the first list. The same requirement was now extended to concern associations also on the second list. So, from now on, second list associations must also have at least 7 members that belong to AYY. However, the requirement of at least 60% of members with the right to vote being members of the Student Union only applies when the association belongs to the first list.

To check and update the number of members, a stipulation was added for all associations about informing the Student Union on member numbers and percentages of members that belong to AYY as part of the association notice. This means that the member lists will be under scrutiny in the upcoming association notice check-up during the spring of 2018. The inspection of the association notices is based on the information submitted to the TAHLO system by the associations, same as before.
