Grants to this Grantee
for creating free open community college textbooks  
We propose a renewal grant to the OpenStax project at Rice University to continue developing market-quality, peer-reviewed open textbooks. This large-scale effort, co-funded by the Michelson, Gates, Arnold, and Maxfield foundations, would provide market-quality open textbooks for the twenty-five community college courses in highest demand. In addition, OpenStax is partnering with a number of for-profit companies for distribution. This renewal would support Phase 3 of the project, building the next ten textbooks for a total of twenty open textbooks covering twenty-five semesters of material.
