To meet the particular objective of increasing external research funding of the university, EKSUORD seeks to make research policy, news and funding opportunities generally available as a valuable resource to academic and research staff to assist them in their professional endeavour.

To achieve this feat, we are pleased to announce that Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti has subscribed (since June, 2013) to Research Professional Africa, a unique facility that provides a comprehensive online system of funding opportunities and research related news. This world leading platform has over 35,000 funding opportunities that are peculiar to African researchers. Every academic and professional member of staff in the university is expected to collect username and password from the Office of Research and Development with which they can log in to the RA website. This arrangement will avail researchers in the University to access research grants, privileges and so on through the platform.
