NC LIVE is no longer accepting grant applications from faculty and instructors who are committed to adopting an open textbook for their course(s) in place of a commercial textbook. We were not able to procure the permanent funding necessary to maintain the OENC program. See our Awarded Grants for examples of faculty who adopted through Open Education North Carolina.
The criteria for selection were as follows:
- Eligibility. The instructor must be employed at an NC LIVE member institution (full list at nclive.org/about/members).
- Savings. The cost savings to students must be significant, as compared with grant applications from faculty at institutions of similar size and type.
- Readiness. The instructor must be ready to adopt an open textbook.
