The Open Textbooks Pilot program supports projects at eligible institutions of higher education (IHEs) or State higher education agencies that create new open textbooks (as defined in this notice) and expand the use of open textbooks and course materials in courses that are part of a degree-granting program, particularly those with high enrollments.
