VIVA Open Grant Awards

This page links out to all awards made through the VIVA Open Grant program. 


Open Adopt Grants
In December, 2020, VIVA awarded their first round of VIVA Open Adopt Grants. These $2,000 awards are to individual instructors for the adoption of an existing open resource. Awards support the time it takes to integrate open and no-cost materials into a syllabus, and to make the results of those efforts widely available to all Virginia educators.  


Open Course Grants

The goal of the VIVA Open Course Grants (formerly Course Redesign Grants) is to make textbook and course materials free to students by empowering faculty with the resources and time they need to develop their curricula using open, library, or no cost resources. Grants awards range from $2,000 - $30,000, are individual and multi-institutional, and are designed to support Virginia higher education instructors in adopting, adapting, or creating course materials that replace costly existing resources.  All VIVA Open Awards projects are available through VIVA Open.
