Grants | Getting Started
For many faculty, grant writing is analogous to walking into a tornado. While the grant writing process can be difficult to navigate, we at the grants office are here to help and guide you!
A Few Important Notes | Help Me Help You
If you are looking to submit grants, please inform us so that it can be entered into Eastern University’s Raiser’s Edge database as a proposal and reserved promptly. If multiple departments or personnel apply for the same grant, those that are entered into Raiser’s Edge will have priority for submission. This allows us to better organize and help you.
All of Eastern University’s official submissions and passwords are held in the grants office.
Eastern University does not have a grant writer on staff. Faculty and staff are asked to complete the narrative portion of the application. The grants office will complete subsequent required forms, financial information and often submit the application electronically. Please allow as much lead time as possible to gather necessary documentation.
All grants are submitted on behalf of Eastern University, not a particular person or department. All award checks should be written out to Eastern University, with the contact information being Ingrid Cooper, Director of Grants, Foundations, and Government Relations, Ott Hall.
Keep in mind that the actual submission of a grant often takes multiple days. Do not wait until the deadline to submit. Electronic issues, late changes in instruction, and character counts are just some of the reasons that submissions can take up to 3 days to upload.
