  • Scale OER ($1,500 - $2,500): Targets projects with a vision, plan, and commitment to develop an OER pathway.
  • NEW for 2019! Create OER ($1,500 - $2,500): Targets OER creation in a high-need discipline/meta-discipline to fill gaps in existing OER content.
Grants will be distributed by the end of FY18-19 for Spring 2019 project planning and development and Fall 2019 OER implementation.  Proposals must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, March 22, 2019.
