Awards will be made up to $5,000 each, with a total of $50,000 being awarded. These funds are eligible for use as salary and as operating expenses and must be expended by the end of FY20.

Criteria: Grant submissions will be evaluated for impact (dollars saved per student and size of student population impacted) and sustainability of project.

Eligibility: All full time faculty (Academic Professionals, Instructors, Lecturers, Assistant, Associate and Full Professors, etc.) may apply for this grant. Applications from teams (e.g. groups of instructors teaching the same course) also will be accepted.

Grant proposal submissions should be submitted using the application form at this link and are due November 15, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their funding status by December 15, 2019. More information on the Affordable Course Materials Grant program is available here.
