Each application typically solicits basic biographical information such as address, citizenship, educational institutions attended, proposal title, ect. The form and style are unique to each opportunity and generally are the first pieces of information the selection committees review. Most applications are now completed online, but those that aren't must be typed neatly and professionally. While you may be inclined to focus all of your energies and efforts on writing and editing your proposals and essays, any actual application form should not be overlooked in its importance. Prepare it with care and precision.
