REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
These grants are intended to improve research competitiveness within the commonwealth and at Mason 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@Mason, in collaboration with the University Libraries and Mason Online, offers faculty grants for course redesign incorporating Open Educational Resources (OER). The goal of this effort is to create engaging, lively digital materials for students which also offers student savings – reducing or eliminating the outlay for an often-costly textbook
Mason faculty involved in proposals with other 4-VA institutions may be eligible to apply for complementary funding of up to $5,000 to support cross-university collaborative work.
