Grant writing assistance

Quick guide to SmartyGrants

To provide an easy way for applicants to submit applications online, we use the SmartyGrants system.

SmartyGrants allows you to:

  • create your own login to access any grants you’re working on
  • create and save your draft application and continue at any time
  • upload documents
  • provide end-of-project reporting if needed
  • be certain that we’ve received your application when you submit it.

If you are representing an organisation, SmartyGrants also allows you to create an organisational login so other staff members can access grant information as required.

For more information about how to register, log-in and complete applications, please visit SmartyGrants – help guide for applicants.
