The Colorado Department of Higher Education and the Colorado OER (Open Educational Resources) Council are accepting proposals for the Open Educational Resources grant.
This grant program was created to:
- Raise awareness of OER among faculty, staff and students in Colorado
- Provide funding to institutions, faculty and staff, and support and expand the creation, adoption, adaptation and promotion of the use of OER in Colorado
- Save students at Colorado’s public institutions of higher education in textbook costs in the coming years
The OER grant program will aid CU and other institutions in the pursuit of the Colorado Statewide Master Plan Strategic Goals by encouraging innovation, investing in affordability, improving student success and addressing the equity gaps in the state.
Application deadline is Oct. 31.
