Open and Affordable Teaching Materials Grant Opportunity

Faculty, instructors can submit proposals now through April 28

Those who are teaching an upcoming course at the University of Delaware are encouraged to apply for an Open and Affordable Teaching Materials grant, offered by the UD Library, Museums and Press.

The grants are designed to support course material affordability and to empower those who teach to transform their courses with open, free or existing Library-licensed materials.

There are four types of grants available.

  • Individuals can apply for a $500 grant to enrich an existing small course (49 students or fewer) by incorporating open educational resources or Library-licensed materials into their teaching materials.
  • Teams who want to enrich a low-enrollment course (49 students or fewer) that is offered through five or more unique sections can apply for a grant that provides $600 per person.
  • Individuals teaching a large enrollment course (50 students or more) can apply for a $1,500 grant to enrich their materials. Additional funds are available for teams working on course sequences or multi-section courses.
  • Individuals or teams can also apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to adapt an existing open educational resource to fit the needs of their course.

For faculty and instructors who are interested in learning more, an information session will be held on March 6 and a hands-on workshop will explore open educational resources on March 7. The deadline for proposals is April 28.
