Resolution Extension

The Program recognizes that the timing of the application intake period may present a challenge for completing the resolution prior to the close of the intake (July 31st, 2018). As such, the Program will accept resolutions from applicants until August 31st, 2018. 

Please note that the resolution extension does not impact the application close date of midnight PDT on July 31, 2018 and all other application components must be submitted at that time.
