Round 21: Grantees and Documents

The Round 21 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, as well as continuous improvement of those materials. The grants had two categories: Transformation Grants (for courses adopting no- or low-cost materials for the first time), and Continuous Improvement Grants (for courses improving materials and/or improving their use of the materials).

ALG worked with a team of experienced grant reviewers who evaluated the projects and managed the peer review process using Google Forms. Proposing teams were notified of the review committee’s decision after an administrative review.

In this round, Affordable Learning Georgia was able to award 38 impactful projects from 15 USG institutions.
