Grants of $2,000-$30,000 for Switching to Open Course Materials

Posted on: February 3, 2022

Are you concerned about the high cost of textbooks for your students? Open or no-cost materials offer an alternative to traditional textbooks and allow instructors to customize, save, and share course materials for free.

Apply by February 23, 2022 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. You will need to pilot the course by Spring 2025. Full-time or part-time faculty may apply. Award notification will occur on May 20, 2022.
