The UC Davis Library is now accepting faculty and instructor applications for the 2024 AggieOpen Fellows program.

Participants receive funding awards ranging from $2,000 to $7,500, and project development assistance to adopt or adapt openly licensed, freely accessible course materials—known as open educational resources (OER)— for undergraduate courses they teach.

Funded by LibreText Foundation and the UC Davis Library, the AggieOpen Fellows program champions the use of OER as an alternative to traditional, commercially published textbooks for undergraduate courses. The program, launched as a pilot initiative in 2023, is part of the library’s commitment to expanding the availability of openly licensed course materials at minimal cost for the benefit of both UC Davis students locally and higher education globally.

Learn more about AggieOpen Fellows and apply by Sunday, February 25, 2024. Awards will be announced by April 3, 2024.
