If you wish to save your work and continue later, click on the "Save and Continue" button located at the bottom of this form. This feature will show a link in a blue box that will re-populate the fields of the form with your data. It is suggested that you copy/paste the provided link to a separate digital note or file, as the link cannot be re-sent for privacy and security reasons. Alternately, you will be prompted to enter an email address at which you will receive this link when submitted - however, again, we suggest that the best route to retain the link is to copy/paste it, as automated emails are often flagged as spam and may not make it to you. This link will be good for 30 days. Attachments will not maintain attachment to the form and must be re-attached after using the save and continue feature.
Please avoid the following specific combination of characters within the text of your application entry, as it has caused issues in previous application seasons with our form software: ") (" A closing parenthesis followed by a space, followed by an opening parenthesis. Using any of these characters in any other configuration is acceptable.
It is recommended that you frequently save an in-process application periodically by clicking on the Save and Continue button at the bottom of the form. Any work not saved will be lost if the application window closes and/or if there is an interruption in the sending process. If you experience issues with the form, and are copy/pasting from a word processing app such as Microsoft Word, it may help to strip the text of its rich formatting prior to adding it to the form - try pasting that text into a simpler app such as Notepad (Windows PC) or TextEdit (Mac) and then re-selecting that text in the simpler app and copy/pasting that text into the form fields instead.
If you wish to receive an email confirmation that your application has been received, it may aid in the receiving of such an email to have haroldandgraceupjohnfoundation.org whitelisted on the associated email server.
