The United States Congress has passed $12 million in renewal funding for the Open Textbook Pilot grant program! This represents the largest annual appropriation yet for the program, and will support new open textbook grants this year.
Run by the U.S. Department of Education, the Open Textbook Pilot supports projects that expand the use of open textbooks in order to save students money and improve learning outcomes. This year's $12 million brings the total amount of funding to a significant $47 million over six years. Projects funded by the grant program are expected to save students more than $220 million on textbook costs, with even more to come.
More information will follow as it becomes available. Prospective grantees can refer to the 2022 notice for planning purposes since the structure and timing of a new competition is likely to be similar.
