We have saved students over $6.25 million in textbooks!

Help us continue making course materials more affordable by applying for an OAT award today!

Our Open and Affordable Textbooks (OAT) Program awards $1,000 in research funds to Rutgers faculty who make their courses more affordable for their students by using low-cost materials, library content, or open educational resources (OER). In addition, $3,500 in research funds will be awarded to Rutgers faculty who create and develop a completely new open textbook.

Applications will be accepted until April 12, 2023, for the OAT Program Awards and May 17, 2023, for the OAT Authoring Awards.
