Getting Funded Course Registration Request

The Getting Funded course is open to full-time EKU faculty and staff with an interest in submitting competitive grant proposals for 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 registration form below.  Once approved, participants will receive an email with instructions for getting started and a link to the first module.

Since only full-time faculty and staff may serve as project directors on grant projects, part-time faculty and staff and students are not generally eligible to participate in the course.  If you are a part-time EKU employee in an unique situation and would like to request an exception, please explain your situation in the Comments section below.

Grant funds may not be used to support grant proposal writing activities.  Therefore, this course is not appropriate for individuals whose salaries are funded entirely through external grants.  

We are unable to offer the course for personal development.  The expectation is that each person who participates in the course will prepare and submit an external grant proposal within two years of course completion.
