affordable learning at Cleveland State UniversityAnnouncing our Fall 2022 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 October 31, 2022

The deadline to submit the Textbook Affordability Grant Application is December 2, 2022

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.
