Call for proposals: PALSave Textbook Creation Grants


The Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI) is pleased to announce the latest call for proposals for the PALSave Textbook Creation Grants Program, which will fund the creation of seven open textbooks in the 2023-2025 cohort.

Faculty members from PALNI-supported institutions are invited to submit textbook creation proposals for courses they teach. Textbooks may cover any discipline at the undergraduate or postgraduate level. PALNI seeks proposals for complete textbooks geared toward a specific field of study, which meet the inclusion criteria for the Open Textbook Library. Grant funding of up to $6,500 is available per accepted proposal, with an individual author maximum of $5,000. While joint authorship proposals are welcome, the lead author must be a faculty member employed at a PALNI-supported institution. PALNI will coordinate peer review, copyediting, layout, and hosting services.

To apply, faculty should review the full Call for Proposals document and send proposal requirements to PALSave by January 15, 2023. Notifications of acceptance will be sent March 1, 2023. For questions about the program, or the requirements, please contact PALSave via email.
