The awards and grant commission (which acts in accordance with § 10 of the Thuringian Regulations for Graduate Support (GFV TH / Graduiertenförderungsverordnung)) is elected by the Senate. Its task is to determine whether the requirements for the procurement of a scholarship are met. Depending on the scholarship format, the awards and grant committee decides on the allocation of the respective scholarship or makes a recommendation to the Presidium.
Scholarship extensions are also assessed by the awards and grant commission.
In addition, it carries out conceptual tasks in the field of graduate funding and gives recommendations to the Presidium and the Senate.
