Wenner-Gren's “Conference Grant Application Form” and "Workshop Grant Application Form" plus their required attachments must be submitted using the Foundation's online application submission procedure.
If you are experiencing difficulties making an Online Application Submission, please consult "Troubleshooting Online Application Submissions."
If it is not possible to submit your application online because of inadequate internet access in your country of origin, you must notify the Foundation at least one week before the deadline (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange to submit an application by conventional mail. Please note: application forms that are e-mailed or faxed directly to the Foundation will not be accepted. Please refer to the application procedures for details and guidelines about the information requested in the application.
In addition, all applicants must physically mail five (5) complete, printed copies of the official Conference or Workshop Grant Application Form and Curriculum Vitae of the Applicant (and Co-Applicant) to the Foundation offices. This material must be postmarked by the application deadline (and received by the Foundation no later than two weeks after the deadline) or your application will not be reviewed.
Instructions for preparing and submitting an online application
Preparing and submitting an online application is straightforward, however the Foundation suggests that you print out the following guidelines to help you through the writing and submission process.
- Download the official Conference Grant or Workshop Grant Application Form. Applicants must download and complete the official Application Form. This form is a Microsoft Word 2003 document, which allows individuals to fill out information within the form and save it to their computers.
- Create a User Account: In the "Online Application Submission" section of the Application Forms, applicants are asked to enter one of two URL addresses (depending upon whether or not there is a Co-Applicant) into an Internet Browser. The URL directs individuals to the “Log in” page for Online Applications and asked to create a User Account.
To create a User Account, individuals will be asked to enter an e-mail address (which will be used as the account ID), and a password.
Once the User Account has been created, applicants can begin filling out their online registration information. This User Account will also allow individuals to:
- Save unfinished submissions and return to complete them later;
- Review the content of submitted applications.
Confirmation of your password will be automatically sent to the e-mail address supplied. The confirmation e-mail will also include a direct link to the User Account login page, which applicants should save for their records. They are also encouraged to save the direct link to their User Account in the “Favorites” folder on their internet browser.
- Save and Edit Submissions: Applicants can save the information they have entered online by clicking on the “Save & Finish Later” button located at the bottom of each page.
- Clicking on the “Save & Finish Later” button will take applicants to their User Account home page.
- Once in their User Account home page, applicants can see saved information listed under the “Open” heading.
- Access or Delete In-Progress Applications: On the User Account home page, applicants can resume work on in-progress submissions saved in an earlier session, and view the contents of applications previously submitted.
- To access in-progress submissions and continue the application process, applicants should click on the relevant link listed under the “Open” heading, in the “Application Name” column.
- Applicants can also click the Delete link under the “Action” column to delete partially completed submissions. Note that once deleted, information cannot be retrieved.
- Return to Online User Account: Individuals who have already created a User Account can return to t
