Submittable makes grant management easy!

Our organization uses Submittable to manage our annual grant application, grant reviewing, awarding and reporting processes. It is solely used within our granting department, and it wonderfully accomplishes the task of keeping all of our grant work, applications, documentation, etc. for the grant cycle in one location, and all inter-connected!
  • Everything related to any applicant's grant (original application, review process, notifications, all communications, site visits, and reporting) is in a central location and is connected and easily accessible. This is a HUGE timesaver.
  • Submittable's features are time-saving and make grant management easy and convenient, from start to finish. The platform accommodates every stage of the grant cycle, fluidly and intuitively.
  • The only thing Submittable was missing for us was the ability to pre-populate our grant application with a unique 6-digit ID number for each applicant. This was important to us because we match our applicants with a database from the public school district so we have to make sure that each applicant's ID number is accurate. They did not have this functionality, but they were able to provide a reasonable workaround for it.
Submittable is well-suited for any size organization that offers grants, scholarships, etc. and need a cohesive way to manage the process. Submittable also does not seek to restrict your granting ability by imposing caps on the number of applicants or the number of user accounts (reviewers, etc.) or even the number of grants. Other providers that we looked at before deciding on Submittable wanted to charge us several thousand dollars more to offer more than one grant annually, but Submittable did not limit us in that regard and does not charge more for additional grants. This was important to us because we are visiting the idea of offering a second (micro) grant annually, and it's great to know that we can do that without having to worry about exorbitant costs/fees, etc.

Submittable - highly recommended full-service platform with a fantastic team behind it!

My team has worked closely with Submittable over the past two years to support the AT&T Film Awards, an open competition recognizing emerging and underrepresented filmmakers across the United States. Submittable solves many business challenges for our team. Firstly, we needed a platform that allows for thousands of filmmakers to submit their short films, film descriptions and details about their background to the competition. We also needed to find a vendor that could assist with targeted marketing outreach efforts in reaching aspiring filmmakers and students, along with leveraging their network of entertainment industry professionals, who could assist with reviewing the submissions.

Additionally, I recommended Submittable to a colleague of mine who had a similar need - supporting the AT&T Create-a-thon, a program that allows aspiring creators to shoot a short film across a weekend.
  • Submittable provides a robust, easy to use and stable platform for managing a submission-based competition. The platform allows an admin to easily design, build and launch a site. Backend reporting and the ability to set up judging/evaluations of entries is also a key strength of the platform.
  • The Submittable team has been invaluable to our organization. Cory Davis and Jolene Brink have both been tremendous to work with.
  • Marketing capabilities: Submittable has helped AT&T to reach our target audience in a very strategic and cost-effective manner. Their marketing expertise and guidance has been a huge benefit and time-saver for my team.
  • Minor feature enhancements to the platform including the ability to more easily analyze site traffic patterns without having to extract out of Google Analytics. This is a low priority though.
Submittable is a well suited vendor if you're looking for either a self-service platform for managing your submissions, to a full-service solution (e.g. leveraging their marketing, advertising, design, etc.)
