  • Upon submission, an automated confirmation email along with a copy of your submitted application attached will be sent to the email you registered with SmartyGrants.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.

Attachments and Support Documents:

  • Attachments can be used to support your application.  Save documents to your computer or storage device prior to uploading. 
  • 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 do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

Completing the application in a group/ team:

  • A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.

Spell Check:

  • Most internet browsers (including Firefox v2.0 and above; Safari; and Google Chrome) have spell checking facilities built in – you can switch this function on or off by adjusting your browser settings.
