All other fields are explained in separate articles and links to those articles can be found in this article.
*Funding Name: Enter the name of the funding source. If this is the posting fund, use the name of the application cycle and the year (i.e., 2020 Scholarship Application.) Otherwise use the actual name of the funding source that is familiar to those in your organization and the applicants applying.
If each funding source has its own application, select the application for that single funding source.
If this is the posting fund for a one-to-many process, select the application that is used to apply to all the funds in that application process.
If this is the awarding fund that is part of a one-to-many application process, and you are using one application to apply to all the separate funds, when you create those individual funds, leave this blank on each one.
Sponsoring Organization: Select the organization(s) responsible for maintaining the Funding Source fund. The dropdown allows you to select as many organizations as are applicable.
*Annual Budget/Academic Year: Enter the total amount to be awarded from this funding source for the current academic year and select the academic year for this award period. (If you have associated an application to the funding source, this will automatically populate with the same academic year as the application form.)

General Ledger Account: This is an optional field you can use to record the General Ledger Account number that is used by your accounting program to track the funding for this fund.
