Bridging Differences Grant Program

The goal of the Bridging Differences initiative is to improve understanding and engagement across divergent perspectives at Tufts, through effective communication and programming. The program's focus is on all members of our community—students, faculty, and staff, with an appreciation that lessons learned at Tufts can be applied in other contexts. Any Tufts student, faculty, or staff member may apply for up to $2,000 in funding for projects that will be implemented during the current academic year.

Tisch Library Affordable Course Materials

Tisch Library provides financial support for faculty and instructors in the Schools of Arts, Sciences & Engineering who would like to reduce costs for their students by identifying no-cost course materials to incorporate into their syllabus. 

The program encourages cost savings for students and increased use of no-cost course materials and open educational resources (OER, i.e. those freely available to all audiences and licensed under a Creative Commons license). It aims to create more equitable access to learning and enable inclusion of diverse perspectives and experiences that may be absent from existing textbooks or literature.
