If the Student Award Submitter receives this message: “This page isn’t working redirected you too many times…” (pictured below) while trying to access the award submission through their Dashboard, then their team’s Lead Mentors did not electronically assign them as the Student Award Submitter or they are not properly logged into their own account.
