Submitting the Application
Writing funding applications takes time and resources. Often the application has to be written in a short period of time, putting pressure on everyone involved.
Things can go wrong and often do.
Things that you need to be aware of prior to submitting your completed application include:
- Never leave it to the last minute
- Check if the application can be submitted on-line. Always leave sufficient time for this as electronic 'glitches' can easily occur
- If hard copies are required, check:
- The number of copies needed
- Whether they have to be stapled or clipped
- Whether they have to be marked as 'master' and 'duplicates'
- Regularly save your documents and do periodic back ups
- Make sure the application has been signed:
- Have an electronic signature for the CEO readily accessible
- Make sure that you have included all attachments and that they are presented in a logical order and numbered if appropriate.
The table below provides a non-exhaustive list of things which may go wrong prior to submitting your application. You may want to use some of these suggestions when completing Activity 9.1.
