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.

 Funding Categories:

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).


The RFP addresses three rounds of grants with rolling deadlines:

  • Round 3: May 31, 2015
  • Round 4: September 7, 2015
  • Round 5: December 15, 2015

 Webinars for Review and Q&A:

For each round, there will be at least one open-invitation webinar to review the RFP, the online submission process, and address any questions.
