Round 16: Grantees and Documents
The Round Sixteen Request for Proposals (RFP) offered grant awards to be made to support adoption, adaptation, and creation of no-or low-cost learning materials in USG courses. The grants had three categories: Standard-Scale (smaller teams, affecting under 500 students per year), Large-Scale (department-wide and/or affecting over 500 students per year), and Mini-Grants for OER revisions and ancillary materials creation. In addition, departments with the potential to scale-up past OER successes were invited to apply for a Departmental Scaling grant.
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U) managed the review process with ALG, using the InfoReady Review platform for applications and reviews. ALG worked with a team of experienced grant reviewers who evaluated the projects in a peer review process. Proposing teams were notified of the review committee’s decision after an administrative review.
In this round, 34 proposals were received from 13 USG institutions. Of these, 23 proposals from 11 USG institutions were awarded grants.
