HOW TO COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM
1. YOUR FIRST APPLICATION
If this is your first application and you haven't submitted an application or started filling in a form before, please continue to complete this application form.
You must answer all questions marked with an *.
You may begin anywhere in this application form - ensure you save as you go - there is NO autosave, so it is important to click on the ‘save’ button as you progress through your application.
On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the application. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want, or
Click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.
You need to complete all sections before your application can be submitted.
If you miss out any sections or questions, reminder boxes will pop up telling you what you need to do, or if changes are required, so that you can submit your application.
2. ATTACHMENTS AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS
You will need to upload and submit attachments to support your application. This is very simple, but you will need to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.
You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.
3. SAVING YOUR DRAFT APPLICATION
If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of the applications you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft application and continue from where you left off.
You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form.
4. SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION
You will find a Review button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.
Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed.
Once you have submitted your application, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.
When you submit your application, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached. This will be sent to the email you used to set up your SmartyGrants account.
If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.
