If you can fill in the first and second tabs of the application but can’t complete the content in any of the other tabs, there is a Pre-Application that must be vetted by the program administrator before you can finish the application. (Keep in mind that the administrator can re-name all of the tabs in the application, so there may be a Pre-Application but with a different name – Letter of Intent, Eligibility Test, etc.)

If there is a Pre-Application, you’ll see a Submit button at the top of that tab, like this:

The bright red messages at the top and bottom of the tab also provide an indication that the Pre-Application must be submitted and approved before the rest of the application can be completed.

When you’ve filled out the general information fields in the first tab and completed the Pre-Application, click the Submit button. An administrator will review your submission and make a decision. As soon as a decision is made, you will receive an email to convey that decision.

Approved Pre-Applications

If your Pre-Application is approved, you will be able to complete the rest of the application.

Declined Pre-Applications

If your Pre-Application is declined, you will not be able to complete the rest of the application.

Note: ZoomGrants staff is not part of the decision process. If you have questions regarding the status of your submission, please use the Contact Admin tab in the application in your account to send an email to the Program Contact.

For Collaborators:

If you’re a collaborator and you can’t access or work in certain tabs of the application, it may be that you have not been invited to work on those sections.
Contact the application owner (the person whose email address is listed in the Email field in the first tab of the application) and ask them to update your access permissions so that you can work on those components.
