Submittable clients run social impact programs that make positive changes in communities around the world. From grants to scholarships to incubator or accelerator programs, these community investments empower awardees with funds to further their mission-driven work.
Most programs follow the same basic flow, each step of which is supported in Submittable: starting with applications, to review and decision-making, to awarding and reporting. For many organizations, gathering signatures is a crucial micro-step between the decision and the award. Grant agreements, NDAs, and contracts of all kinds often require signatures to ensure that the funder and recipient are aligned on the terms and intentions for the investment.

Submittable’s integration with DocuSign allows Submittable clients to connect to their own DocuSign account, pull Submittable data into their DocuSign templates, and send DocuSign templates to applicants and awardees through Submittable.
