Getting Funded Course

About the Course
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.  Each web-based learning module includes videos, instructional documents, activities, and resources and can be completed at the participant’s own pace.  Each module will end with a web-based quiz submission that will trigger feedback and a link to the next module.  Ideally, participants will work through each step of the process with a goal of submitting a completed grant proposal following course completion. 

Course Learning Modules
The course is divided into the following seven learning modules: 

  1. Getting Started: Introduction to Sponsored Project Funding
  2. The Money Hunt: Finding and Evaluating External Funding Opportunities
  3. Preparing for Success: Creating a Proposal Development Plan
  4. Making the Case: Writing an Effective Proposal Narrative
  5. Money Matters: Preparing a Compliant Budget that Meets Project Needs 
  6. Getting It Out: Finalizing and Submitting the Application Package
  7. After Submission: Understanding the Review Process and Responding to Review Results

Registration Form 
The Getting Funded course can be started at any time. To request registration, complete the registration form below.

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.  

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.
