  1. All Fulton Faculty Grant applications and all supporting documents (except Out-of-State Travel forms; more on this below) must be submitted electronically by using the "Submit Application" button at the end of the application form. Uploading instructions (regarding supporting documents) are located elsewhere in the application. Out-of-State Travel forms must be submitted via hard copy, with required signatures, directly to the Dean's Office by the application deadline. Please note that beginning in 2013-2014, a completed Out-of-State Travel form is required for all applications for projects that include travel, be it in or out of state.
  2. The online application does not offer a "Save" feature through which one may interrupt his/her work and return to it later.  With this in mind, please look through the complete application instructions and the application itself first and then return to the application  later, ready to cut and paste prepared text into it, upload appropriate documents, and submit the application--all in one sitting (it should only take 10 minutes or so, if one has the necessary text and materials ready prior to executing the application).
