Create a New ZoomGrants™ Account

Administrators

“We are ACCEPTING applications.”

I want to provide grant and scholarship application opportunities online, manage the whole process easily, and fulfill our funding objectives more efficiently.

 


What happens next?

1. Create your Admin account (approx. 2 minutes) – This will set you up with an Administrative account, empty grant and scholarship applications, and provide you with an invoice to send to your Accounts Payable team.

2. Customize your applications (approx. 1 hour, much less if you are copying from a pre-existing application) – Design your applications with the features and settings you need and want. Release them to the public when you are ready.

3. Put ZoomGrants™ on your website (approx. 1 minute) – One line of HTML is all you need to put on your website to have access to all of the ZoomGrants™ features and functionality.

4. Wait for applications to come in (set your own schedule) – After the applications are submitted, you and your team will use the Review Tools to move through your funding process.

5. Set up additional Administrative and Funding Committee accounts (approx. 30 seconds each) – You control access to your applications and programs, and you can do this anytime. Remember, additional users are free to add.

Applicants

“I’m SUBMITTING applications on behalf of myself or my organization.” 

When you find a funding organization that uses ZoomGrants™, the funder will provide a link to its own ZoomGrants™ page where you can create an account from which you can submit your own applications. 
(Note: If you were sent to our homepage by a funding organization that is using ZoomGrants™, they may have provided the wrong link. Please contact our Support Team for assistance.)


 What happens next?

Find an organization accepting applications on their website via ZoomGrants™ then, on the organization’s website:

1. Create your Applicant Account (approx. 30 seconds) – This will create your account and automatically log you in.

2. Click the Apply button (approx. 1 second) – If that funding organization is currently accepting applications, use the Preview and Apply buttons next to those programs to look over or create an application.

3. Complete and submit the application (work at your own pace) – ZoomGrants™ automatically saves your progress as you click through the application fields, so you don’t need to complete the application in one sitting. Just make sure that you complete and submit the application before the deadline.

Our recommendation?

Start early. Finish early. Submit early.

(Who needs more stress?)

Grant Writers

“I’m HELPING OTHERS submit applications but not submitting on my own behalf.” 

I want to find new Grant Seeking clients who need my help with their proposals.
(Note: These accounts are for use by professional grant writers who help multiple organizations work on their applications. Writer accounts cannot be used by individuals to submit their own applications.)


What happens next?

1. Create your Writer account (approx. 2 minutes) – This includes paying for your subscription which will allow applicants all over the world to find you.

2. Complete your profile (approx. 5 minutes) – Adding your photos, specialties, and a brief bio about why someone should hire you will go a long way toward meeting the right clients.

2.5. Pay for your subscription – You can pay by credit card, then applicants will be able to find you.

3. Wait for applicants to contact you (they will find you) – Once an applicant contacts you, negotiate your own payment terms with them. Then they will give you access to their application and you can get to work.
