Limiting Contact Between Applicants and the YSLA:​

It is essential that the application and allocation process for funding from the YSLA be open, fair and efficient. To this end, the electronic/written submission of the application and supporting materials as well as any public presentation that may be required from applicants will be the foundation for YSLA discussion and deliberations. YSLA members are encouraged to limit their contact and communication with applicants regarding their applications or proposed application, and to disclose any such contact or communication prior to participating in the consideration of that applicant's submission.


Any and all points not covered specifically herein are subject to the decision of the YSLA. The Association may, in its sole discretion, make reasonable changes, amendments or additions to agreements and terms and conditions. Any such changes shall be equally binding on the applicant.
