Open and Affordable Teaching Materials Grant Opportunity

Faculty and instructors can submit a proposal through April 30, 2024

When students can’t afford expensive course materials, they start the class at an automatic disadvantage without the assigned texts. Instructors can create a more inclusive learning environment and ensure cost isn’t a barrier to learning by incorporating open and affordable teaching materials into their courses.

Those who teach 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 a small course (49 students or fewer) by incorporating open educational resources or Library-licensed materials into their teaching materials.
  • Individuals who want to enrich a mid-sized course (50-150 students) can apply for a $1,500 grant.
  • Individuals teaching a large enrollment course (150 students or more) can apply for a $5,000 grant. Funding is also available to support up to 100 hours for undergraduate student assistance with the project.
  • Individuals or teams can apply for a $5,000 grant to create an open educational resource to fit the needs of their course through altering, editing or remixing existing materials, or creating original material.

For faculty and instructors who are interested in learning more, please join us for an information session on March 5. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2024.
