Searching Funding Announcements
After logging in, select the "Funding Announcement" tab or the "click here" hyperlink to see the Funding Announcement search page. On this page you can locate, view, and, if appropriate, submit Concept Papers/Applications.
Do not create multiple responses to the same Funding Announcement. If you begin a response to a Funding Announcement, Egrants will automatically assign a Grant ID number to your response. It is important to keep this number for your files.
If you need to close out of Egrants and come back in at a later date, select the Project Management tab rather than the Funding Announcement tab. You will need to enter the previously provided Grant ID number to pull up your work that is saved to date. If you attempt to go back in via the Funding Announcement tab, you will create a multiple response.
Please note: You cannot create an application after the noted close date on the Funding Announcement. Also, if you began an application before the close date, the Egrants system will allow you continue to work on the application after the close date. However, you will not be able to submit the application to ICJI.

Processing a Returned Application
If an application is returned, you will be notified in "Work Manager" under "Tasks" and "Alerts" with a description of "Returned." The application is sent back to you in its entirety, but you will only need to address the sections that have issues/comments or are marked "Returned."
When you click on the hyperlink of the task concerning the "Returned Application," you will be taken to an Issues/Comments page. This will provide you with an explanation from ICJI staff as to why the section(s) was (were) returned.
There is also an "Add New Response" button you can click if you would like to respond in return.
To make changes to the Application from the "Application Summary" screen, select the section(s) that are marked as "Returned" under the "Status column." Update the "Section(s)" and "Save" the corrections. Please make sure you change the application as requested.
