Faculty are invited to apply for one of the following awards for replacing commercial materials with zero-cost resources. 

  1. $1000 one-time award for the adoption of an existing OER and/or use of Library licensed materials.
  2. $1,500 one-time award for modifying an existing OER. OER may be modified by editing or creating content such as additional chapters, modules, question banks, or lecture slides.
