WebGrants Tips & Tricks

  • Do not register in WebGrants more than once. You can use the same account for multiple applications and awards. 
  • Always use the navigation buttons within WebGrants (e.g., Back, Add, Delete, Edit, Save) instead of your web browser's back button.
  • All fields marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.
  • Some fields have character count limits. Character counts include spaces. 
  • You may prefer to prepare your application responses in a program such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs, and then cut and paste your responses into the application forms. Note that if you cut and paste text from a Microsoft Word document or other word processing program, special characters such as (&) or (“) will turn into question marks (?). You can adjust formatting after pasting text into a form.
