Getting Funded Course

The Getting Funded course is open to full-time EKU faculty and staff with an interest in submitting competitive proposals for external funding to support research, instruction, or service projects to be conducted as part of EKU’s mission.  The course is self-paced, 100% online, and can be started at any time.  To request registration, complete the online registration form.  Once approved, participants will receive an email with instructions for getting started and a link to the first module. 

The web-based learning modules include lessons, resources, worksheets, and activities that can be done at the participant’s own pace.  Each module ends with a web-based submission that will trigger feedback and a link to the next module.  We suggest that participants devote two to three hours per week during a two-month period to complete the course, but the course can also be completed in a shorter time period if desired.  Ideally, participants will work through each step of the process with a goal of submitting a completed grant proposal following course completion.  One-on-one assistance is provided as requested during and subsequent to completion of the course.
