Intended to improve research competitiveness within the commonwealth and at GMU by providing funding for faculty to engage in pilot research focused on 4-VA goal areas that could be used as a springboard for subsequent, major federal grants.
4-VA at GMU, in collaboration with the University Libraries and Mason Online, introduces a Request for Proposals regarding Open Educational Resources (OER). This pilot project is focused on innovative course redesign that reconsiders the materials currently used with the intent purpose to integrate digital materials.
GMU faculty involved in proposals with other 4-VA institutions will be eligible to apply for complementary funding of up to $5,000 to support cross-university collaborative work. Please download and submit the complementary request form for consideration.
