The deadline for the application is January 15th.
To be eligible, each YM Section must be in good standing to apply for grants.

societies. Sections need to have an annual election, around September,
to renew their officers.
Funding decisions were made based on the following criteria:
- potential to raise awareness of optics and its impact in daily life
- potential to reach a large audience
- clarity and structure of the project
- clear timeline and budget.
