Forms and Resources

Prepare in advance the following required documents utilizing the templates provided below. Combine and order the supporting materials and upload into one (1) PDF file. Name the file using this format only: Last Name, First Name – PTB 2017.

Both an MS Word version and a PDF version of the forms are provided.  However, all documents MUST be converted to Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files prior to being attached to the application and uploaded to BWF's online application submission system.

If you choose to use the MS Word version of the form, you must correct any changes to the form resulting from input of data prior to converting to PDF format.  Data should be completed in the space provided.  The form must respect the original margins on all sides.

If you choose to use the PDF version, you must use Adobe Acrobat to complete and save the form to your system. (Using Adobe Reader will not work properly, neither will using Preview on a Mac.)

The Items below must be combined into one continuous PDF file in the order shown.  You will then upload the PDF file as an attachment to your application in BWF's on-line application submission system.
