Following are some helpful hints in preparing your application, however they do not replace the important information provided in the guidelines:


  1. Open the guidelines and read them carefully before beginning to fill in your application.
  2. Open the application and save it to your computer before you begin to fill out the application.
  3. Text boxes are restricted in size, please do not attempt to expand the text boxes or add attachments.
