The UNC Affordable and OER (AOER) Committee wants UNC faculty, departments and programs
to know about Round 6 of the statewide OER grant program. The grant program aims to support the adoption, adaptation and creation of open
educational resources (OER) for courses and programs at Colorado higher education
The grant program offers multiple award categories, with grants ranging from $15,000
for small groups to $100,000 for the creation of a zero textbook cost degree (z-degree).
Please note that the grants subcommittee of the UNC AOER Committee will apply for
the general incentive fund (up to $25,000). However, there are opportunities in other
categories available for faculty or departments to pursue.
Interested applicants should review the full RFP from the Colorado Department of Higher Education for more information, eligibility criteria, evaluation process and reporting requirements.
Applicants should also send a Notice of Intent to UNC’s Office of Research and Sponsored
Programs and work with their office as needed. Final proposals are due to the state
by Monday, Dec. 18, at 5 p.m.
