Q: How do I download a PDF of my application?
Downloading a PDF of your application is simple and is available in two places (please note: prior to 04/03/20 you will only be able to download the PDF from the "Review and Submit page as outlined below).
Once you have navigated to the Round and clicked on the link you will see the option to 'Start a New Submission' should the round be open. You will also have the option to download a PDF of the form should the round be open. Some funder's will also allow the form to be previewed, and downloaded, prior to the round opening. Clicking on the 'Download preview form' link will provide you with a PDF of the application form.
Once you have started an application, click onto the "Review and Submit" page, which is the final page of the application form.
From the "Review and Submit" page, you will see a button to download a PDF of your form.
Q: I was logged out and when I tried to submit my application form. SmartyGrants said the round is now closed but there is still time until the deadline has expired.
Funders are able to set up a funding target when creating Rounds in SmartyGrants. When that funding target has been reached, the round can be automatically closed. It is most likely this is what you have experienced. We recommend contacting the funder to confirm that this is the case.
