Sample Application Forms
To help organize the information we need about your company and your project, download supporting templates and a version of the project funding application form from the tools and templates page. When you have all of the information ready, you can cut and paste answers in the appropriate places in the online (web) application form. NOTE: All applications must be submitted through the online application form. Paper copies, emails or faxes are not permitted.
Our application form has a number of detailed questions about your company, the people who work there, and about the specifics of your proposed project, its costs and timing, and the benefits you expect from it. The questions are detailed because we want to give you the best opportunity to provide a very clear presentation about why your project will be successful and will make a difference to your company.
Who Should Complete the Application?
Because the application contains important information about your company (for example your corporate registration number) and about your proposed project (including details of costs and timing), different people in your organization may have to contribute different information to complete your application. However, at this time, only one person per facility can be registered to use the online system, so it might be best if the application is actually made by a senior person at the company. Under no circumstances can SMART accept applications submitted by a third party consultant even with the permission of the company. This decision is to protect SMART and the applicant from having an anauthorized submission.
