VIVA Open Adopt Grants provide awards of $2,000 to individual instructors to support the time it takes to integrate existing open or no-cost materials into a syllabus, and to ensure that the results of those efforts are widely available to Virginia educators.
Instructors interested in applying for this opportunity are encouraged to explore VIVA’s repository of Open Education Resources, VIVA Open, to discover open resources that may be of use in their courses. Applicants do not need to choose a resource listed in VIVA Open to apply for the grant.
Team and departmental adoptions, as well as projects seeking to adapt or create new Open Educational Resources, should apply for the larger scale VIVA Open Course Grants.
Applications are due October 4, 2021 via email at email@example.com. Notification of award recipients will take place by November 12, 2021. Adopted course materials must be piloted in the classroom by spring, 2023.
