The high cost of commercial print textbooks is a major concern for Kansas State University, students, and their parents. The initiative’s goal is to encourage the adoption and/or development of cost saving texts for students while improving the quality of the learning process. Through the initiative, faculty can receive a stipend up to $5,000 to develop or adopt an alternate to a traditional textbook.

The funds can be given to either an individual faculty member or a team of faculty teaching multiple sections of the same course. A proposed project may include: The use or adaptation of an existing open access textbook (see Resources to Find Open Textbooks); Library resources, high quality open educational resources (OER), media; and/or faculty-authored materials
