How to review grant applications and other helpful ideas.

Create a submission category for grant proposals and encourage your applicants to apply via Submittable. Place a ‘Submit’ button or a link to your category on your website so that applicants can easily find your application form. We know that a grant application can be lengthy, but the Submittable drag-and-drop tool makes building your category exceptionally easy. You can even send applicants a set of follow-up fields (an application, for example) if they pass a first set of criteria, which is a great way to wean unqualified applications from the process.

Create team member accounts with appropriate permission levels. Our permission levels feature enables you to set higher permission levels for managers and administrators, so that only top-level team members can accept and decline applications, assign them to particular reviewers, and communicate with applicants. You can also set blind permission levels so that team members at certain permission levels cannot see identifying information about applicants, such as their names and email addresses.

Make faster and smarter decisions. By implementing the above and assigning permission levels to your team members, you can assign all incoming applications to lower-level team members for an initial review, so that higher-level team members only see valid, highly qualified applications. This helps streamline your decision-making process and make it more efficient.

Three tips for implementing an optimal grant submission workflow.

one

Build a multi-stage category form. Remember, the more you ask of the applicant at the point of applying, the less you’ll need to ask later. However, a lengthy initial set of questions and qualifications can be off-putting to the applicant. With our form logic feature, you can use conditional logic in your application form, so that only certain questions will appear when users select specific answers in your form.

two

Segment team members properly. From a managerial standpoint, the best and fastest way to make decisions is to let your team members do an initial review of applications and to decline any applications that don’t meet basic standards. Then, have higher-level administrators make the final decisions on the qualified remaining applications.

three

Optionally make applicants anonymous. You have the option to make applications anonymous to team members at or below your preferred blind-level settings.This can help prevent team members from making decisions based on preconceived notions they may have about the applicants.
