In Fall 2017, the UW Libraries launched the Alternative Textbook Grant program. This program allows faculty at UW to apply for grant funding to shift their courses from relying on traditional textbooks to using OER materials.

To date, 68 faculty and graduate students across six colleges received 63 grants, resulting in over $2.23 million in savings for 22,360 students.* 

Read the full story on the Impact of OER blog.

Call for Proposals

We invite motivated faculty interested in innovative engagement with their course materials to submit ideas for funding. Proposals intended to adopt, adapt or create OER materials will be considered. Grant awards will range from $2,500 to $5,000.

Interested applicants are required to attend the “OER 101” workshop Tuesday, March 5, before submitting grant applications. Proposals are due Tuesday, March 26.
