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 in red text with a red asterisk (*) are required.
