affordable learning at Cleveland State UniversityIt's not too late to apply for our Fall 2023 Textbook Affordability Small Grants for Faculty

Textbook Affordability Grants are offered through the Michael Schwartz Library to encourage and support the creation or compilation of low-cost or no-cost course materials. Faculty whose projects are selected will receive grant amounts ranging from $500 to $2500 depending on the project. Appropriate support to create or compile an open educational textbook or other educational resources to replace a traditional, high-cost textbook will be provided by the Michael Schwartz Library, the Center for eLearning, the Center for Instructional Technology and Distance Learning, and the Center for Faculty Excellence. Five awards are available.

The deadline to complete the Intent to Submit Form is November 10th, 2023

The deadline to submit the Textbook Affordability Grant Application is December 1st, 2023

The goal of the grant is to encourage and support adoption of openly licensed course materials in order to save students money and encourage student-centered pedagogy. Since 2016, our Textbook Affordability Grants have saved CSU students over a million dollars.

The Michael Schwartz Library is committed to empowering students and faculty by providing access to resources in support of research and teaching. As an integral part of the University's mission to provide accessible, affordable, and Engaged Learning opportunities, we support the development of open educational resources and work to promote equitable access to education for all.
