Application Forms - Technical Overview / FAQ

What format are the forms provided in?

All the forms are provided as Adobe Portable Document Format, or PDF files. Using the PDF format means that the forms should print the same regardless of what hardware and software combination you are using. In order to view, edit or print these files, you will require the Adobe Acrobat Reader software, or another PDF viewing package. Acrobat reader can be downloaded from Adobe, free of charge, and is available for several platforms. All the PDF files are formatted for printing on US letter size paper (8.5" x 11").

Why can't I save or email completed or part-completed forms?

Adobe's Acrobat Reader software does not permit saving the user-entered content of interactive PDF forms. The only way to do this is to use the full version of Acrobat (not Acrobat Reader) which is available from Adobe's website.

I have another problem...

If you are having difficulties with the forms and the problem is not covered by the information above, and you think it could be a problem at this site, please email webmaster@marshallscholarship.org.
