UTA Libraries provide support for members of the UTA community to enable participation in local, regional, and national OER conferences and events. Travel scholarships have been temporarily suspended per university travel guidance. However, financial support for participation at virtual events is available. Applicants are required to include a statement about why they are interested in attending the conference and what they hope to gain from the experience.
Applications to present on OER at disciplinary conferences will be considered; a departmental match may be required.
