Open Educational Resources (OER): OER Grants Policy

CBU Top Up Grants

CBU Library is happy to be able to provide 2 grants, of $1,000 each, to CBU employees who are recipients of the AtlanticOER Development Grants .  We hope this will encourage and support educators from CBU in the adaptation, adoption, creation and curation of open educational resources, and to increase access to open course material for students. 


Any individual who is employed at CBU, who assigns readings toward use within a credit course at CBU, and who applies for and is awarded an AtlanticOER development grant, is eligible for this award.  

Evaluation Criteria  

The awarding of the grant will be based upon the applicant’s successful application to the AtlanticOER  Development Grant, we do not require any further information from you as an applicant. Names of AtlanticOER recipients will be passed along to the CBU Library, and the grants will be given to up to 2 CBU recipients. 

The acceptable uses of the top up grant will be the same as in the AtlanticOER Development Grants. (Support, Development, Events/sprints, Resources:  

Special Notes  

  • If there are more than 2 CBU recipients of the AtlanticOER Development Grant, two names will be selected randomly to receive the Top Up Grant.  

  • If an application for a successful AtlanticOER Development Grant is submitted by a group, the group will receive a top up grant, not each individual on the application.  

  • You will be notified via email  mid March. The email will include details for receiving the funds.
