Request for Proposals in Support of Open Educational Resources
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.* Open textbooks and course materials are digital in format and made freely available online. Free and open textbooks and course materials are being developed in many disciplines at a fast and growing rate and are funded by organizations such as the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Oregon State University is committed to supporting this endeavor. To that end, Open Oregon State is a unit that has been created within Extended Campus to assist faculty in the research, use and creation of open educational resources.
Open Oregon State and the office of Summer Session are partnering to pilot a program to encourage the use of open textbooks and other course materials in order to address textbook/course material affordability for our students.
Proposals for the use of open educational textbooks and course materials for use in a face-to-face Corvallis or Hatfield Summer Session course are now being accepted.
Funding for accepted proposals is up to $1,000 per course.
Open Oregon State will assist faculty in finding and evaluating suitable open textbooks and course materials for their Summer Session course. Summer Session agrees to highlight courses that have adopted OERs at no cost to students. The faculty member agrees to use the open textbook and/or course materials in their Summer Session course.
In addition, the faculty member agrees to submit a 1-2 page review of the textbook/course materials that were used in the course, addressing the suitability of the materials for use in future courses using these review criteria. This RFP and the Review Criteria are also attached.

Attached you will find a booklet and poster announcing the Nuclear Nonproliferation International Safeguards Graduate Fellowship Program (NNIS) for the 2015-2016 Award cycle.
This program is designed to meet the needs of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) for appropriately trained personnel in research and development in areas pertinent to Nuclear Nonproliferation and International Safeguards (NNIS). Increasing costs for graduate education and a high demand for nuclear-related scientists and engineers with a bachelor’s degree have had a negative impact on the number of well-qualified students seeking advanced degrees in nuclear technologies and sciences. This problem has been particularly acute in programs in nuclear materials, engineering, nuclear science and engineering, radiochemistry and health physics, which has resulted in the closure of several programs and declining graduate school enrollments over the past two decades. This fellowship seeks to build collaboration between the leading nuclear technology programs and the schools studying the policy aspects of nuclear nonproliferation. The primary emphasis of this fellowship is to produce doctoral graduates who are familiar with both the technical and policy aspects of nonproliferation and international safeguards.
We hope you will print and prominently display the attached poster. Please forward the attached booklet to anyone interested and encourage students to apply for this program. This program description and all electronic application materials can be found on www.scuref.org.
