Affordable Materials Grants


The State of Georgia’s budget includes funding to support a USG initiative, Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG), which focuses on reducing the costs of textbooks and the enhancement of GALILEO, Georgia’s Virtual Library and ALG’s parent initiative. A key strategy is to provide grant-supported opportunities for USG faculty, libraries, and institutions to transform their use of textbooks and other learning materials into lower cost options. The Affordable Learning Georgia Grants are intended to:

  • Explore and expand course materials transformation to include the adoption, adaptation, and creation of Open Educational Resources (OER); the adoption of materials available through GALILEO and USG libraries; and the use of other no-cost and low-cost materials.
  • Provide support and time to faculty instructors, librarians, instructional designers, and other professional staff to meet, plan, review, and implement these approaches.
  • Work toward equitable access to materials and lower materials costs for students and contribute to their retention, progression, and graduation.

For a list of all of the grant projects at your institution, please check the institution’s ALG Data Center report.
