1. How do I log into the system?

The INawards online application system is separate from the IIDANPC website. If you submitted a project since 2019, you are in luck! Your profile/login still exists. If you are new to the system, simply create a new login/passowrd. If you would like to access a former employee's profile, send your request to iidanpc.inawardsentry@gmail.com.
