Open Educational Resources (OER) at CCSU
Internal CCSU Grants page Curriculum Development Grant Guidelines (downloadable Word document) Deadline: Proposals must be electronically date stamped by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.   Submissions should be emailed to "In an effort to encourage lateral thinking about curriculum development, and in line with ongoing and parallel efforts by the Center for Teaching and Faculty Development, we strongly encourage curriculum development proposals focused on the development and deployment of Open Educational Resources (OER). This can include (but is not limited to) both curricula that use such materials or attending training/workshops in this area of activity."
Connecticut Statewide Open Educational Resources Grant Deadline: April 20 2020 at 11:59 PM EDT (Midnight) "The Connecticut Open Educational Resources Coordinating Council is excited to announce a new grant program for faculty and departments within Connecticut’s higher education institutions to explore, adopt, and supplement Open Educational Resources (OER). 

This grant program will focus on OER opportunities in “high impact” areas – courses with high enrollment, and high textbook costs for which high-quality OER already exists. Adopting OER has the potential to increase student success rates."

The state level grant (application due April 20th) includes $250, $500, and $1000 basic levels of funding, depending on the type of activity covered (e.g., reviews, adoption, creation). There is also a higher funding level, for collaborative, larger scale proposals not covered in the other categories that can demonstrate a high impact on student success through the use of OER. Cross-institutional collaborative proposals as well as student involvement are strongly encouraged. Refer to the application website.

Further details on the state funding opportunity will be available at the inaugural Statewide OER Summit at Goodwin College, East Hartford, taking place on Friday, February 28, 2020. Register for the Summit here.
