Instructions for Completing the Online Form
Please review the Grant Guidelines and instructions prior to completing your application.
1. Complete all fields within the application. If there is no information to supply, type “N/A” in the field. If you have failed to complete one of the fields, you will receive a warning after you click the “Submit Application” button, and the incomplete field will be highlighted on the form.
2. We suggest that you prepare and save your responses in advance in Microsoft Word or another word-processing program and cut & paste into the form when you are ready. The on-line form will allow you to complete portions of the application and save it, however:
IF you choose to use this feature, you will receive instructions on saving the form and you must use a valid email address for retrieval. Note: If you do not receive the email (for instance you enter it incorrectly) there is no way to retrieve the form, so it is important to have a back-up!
3. Please adhere to the word limits specified in the questions. Most word processing software can provide you with a word count. Text that exceeds the word limit will not be considered when reviewing your application.
4. Check for a confirmation email after you submit the form. When you are ready to submit, enter the security code at the bottom of the form and click “Submit Application.” You will see a note confirming that the form was submitted successfully. You should also receive an copy of your application which will be sent to the email address you included on the form. Please check that you have received this confirmation email (you may need to check your junk mail folder). If you did not receive a confirmation email after you believe you have successfully submitted the form, please contact us.
