Completing the Grant Application Packet
Some funding agencies provide their own forms and insist that they be used for all applications. This is quite common with government agencies. Don't let the paperwork daunt you — it might look complicated, but it's actually your opportunity to provide all the information you can.
When completing a grant application form, answer every question and fill in every space, unless it clearly says “office use only.” If a particular question is not applicable, write “N/A” under the heading. This shows the evaluator that you read, understood, and answered the question. Leaving it blank might indicate that you missed the question, therefore making your application incomplete.
For the applicable questions and requests for information, fill in the appropriate information. Do not write “see attached proposal”; pull the relevant information out of the proposal and write it in on the application.
