Faculty: Apply for a Grant to Transition to Open Textbooks & Course Materials

Posted on: January 4, 2021

Are you concerned about the high cost of textbooks for your students? Online textbooks offer a free alternative to traditional textbooks and allow instructors to customize, save, and share course materials for free.

Apply by February 23 for a grant of $2,000-$30,000 to support a course redesign that makes your course materials more affordable and accessible to students by switching to open, no-cost, or library resources.

Open Course Grants (formerly Course Redesign Grants) empower faculty with the resources and time they need to redesign courses by swapping out commercial textbooks and other expensive course materials for open, no-cost, or library options. Full-time or part-time faculty may apply. Award notification will occur on May 14, 2021.
