March of Dimes Application Instructions / Guidelines

You will find several kinds of fields in your application forms – check boxes, dates, data entry and attachments.  Attachments are documents that are prepared outside the application using whatever editing software you desire (e.g., Microsoft Word), converted to PDF format and then uploaded in the Upload Attachments section of your application.  We require PDF format to preserve document formatting and a consistent reading experience for reviewers and staff.

We have very specific attachment formatting requirements. Failure to follow these requirements may lead to application errors upon submission.

Below are the links to supporting documents and files to guide you through this process.
