Open Educational Resources - A Guide for Faculty: OER Grant Opportunities

This guide will provide information about OER, examples of OER currently in use at OCCC, and information for receiving assistance with implementing OER content in a course.

OER Development Grants

All full time and adjunct faculty teaching transferrable courses are eligible to apply for open textbook development/adoption grants for projects to be completed within the 2022-23 academic year. A total of $235,000 in funding is available on a first-come basis. 

Three grant types are offered, including:

  • $500 – Whole adoption of an existing OER
  • $1,000 – Remix/revision of two or more existing OER into a new book
  • $2,500 – Full authorship of a new OER

Additionally, a $500 Ancillary Materials Grant is available as add-on or stand-alone to fund the creation of homework and assessments to accompany a new or existing OER textbook.  Funding will be disbursed from OSRHE to the faculty’s teaching institution upon completion of project requirements, who may issue the award to the faculty.

Interested faculty may initiate a consultation request with OSRHE to discuss their project and apply for the funds.
