Affordable Learning Georgia has issued a call for proposals for their Textbook Transformation Grants here. The grants support the adoption of low-cost or no cost course materials. This is the rounds 3-5 of Textbook Transformation grant opportunities. So far, these grants have been successful in saving students in the University of Georgia system over $1,000,000 per year. With rounds 3-5 of the textbook transformation grants, we are continuing our efforts to save students money and to increase student success.
Two levels of funding are available (Single Course: $10,800 or Multiple Sections/Courses/Department-Wide: $30,000) in three categories of projects (No-Cost-to-Students Learning Materials, OpenStax Textbooks, and Specific Top 50 Lower Division Courses).
