About

Affordable Materials Grants

Overview

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.

You can also access the Grants Master List spreadsheet to search for specific information regarding your institution’s grants.
