Announcing the Future Fund

We're excited to share this opportunity out! 

However, at our institution, we've noticed an issue with the Google application form. When we try to access it, we receive the following message: "You can't respond to Future Fund: Application for Funding. Uploading files is not permitted when data loss prevention is enabled for your domain. Contact your domain administrator if you think this is a mistake.”

According to our IT person: "It seems this is part of an all-or-nothing situation related to Google Data Loss Prevention features, with no option to bypass or disable it. I’ve found a lot of complaints in various forums, and Google’s answer is that form creators should accept links to files rather than the files directly."

Is there a remedy to this situation that you recommend? If possible, we'd like to give our faculty the opportunity to submit using their institutional credentials, as opposed to have to use a personal account.
