OER Guide: Grants

Open Educational Resources at Linn-Benton Community College

OER Grant Opportunities

LBCC offers textbook affordability grants each year to fund OER development and other ways of saving students money and increasing access to course resources. Estimates indicate that for every $1 spent funding OER work, students will realize $10 in savings. Over $550,000 total was saved in the first year alone. 

The call for proposals for grant work done between July 1, 2019 and May 15, 2020 is now open! See the Application FAQs for more information.

OpenOregon offers a separate grant opportunity. More money is available to fund larger projects, and you can work across Oregon institutions (collaborating with faculty at OSU, for example).
