Did all my information from my previous grant and fellowship applications get carried over into the SurveyMonkey Apply system?
Yes. If you’re scrolling through your applications you might see that only some lines are filled in for the new system. That’s largely because we changed some questions when we migrated. However, we also attached a copy of your full application in the “File Uploads-Public” section, so everything is preserved.
I don’t see my previous applications that were declined. Are they gone for good?
No. Applications that were rejected in the previous system were migrated over to SurveyMonkey Apply as well. They have simply been archived to make the system easier for you to navigate. Should you need to access any of that information, simply email David Kumbroch at firstname.lastname@example.org. He can reactivate your application or provide you with any specific documents you might need, including your full application.
I noticed some formatting errors in the data that got carried over. Will this negatively affect any of my applications that I submitted before the migration?
Absolutely not. In the process of moving over some data, formatting errors may have been introduced. However, only applications submitted through SurveyMonkey Apply will be reviewed in the system. Applications submitted through the previous system were reviewed using our previous methods. The Scientific Advisory Board is reviewing those grants just like they did all the others before the migration. As such, the SAB will not see the formatting errors that you may notice.
