Funding Priorities

Affordable Course Materials Program 
Through the Provost's Affordable Course Materials Grant program, faculty members can receive $5,000 to support the transition from costly course materials such as textbooks to educational resources that are free for students or cost less than $40.

CARES Laptop Loan Program
The UGA libraries offers one semester laptop loans for enrolled students who have no personal computer to complete their classwork. Laptops will be due back two business days after the last day of finals.

Special Collections Teaching Fellows Program
In 2015, UGA Libraries and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) established this opportunity for all full-time instructional faculty at UGA. The goal of this program is to provide opportunities for supported exploration of archives-based learning as a high impact learning practice.

Experiential Learning Opportunities 
Each of the three special collections departments offers internship or stipend opportunities to students who wish to gain experience working with archival collections. Please email or call the designated contact listed on each posting for more information.

Oral History Program 
The Russell Library’s oral history collections document the voices and intersections of politics, public policy, government, society, and culture. Collection strengths and focuses include modern Georgia politics, policy, and biography, disability rights, U.S. foreign service, African-American experience, Athens, Georgia, and Athens music history. 

Georgia Music Collections
With the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Collection as its cornerstone, the University of Georgia Special Collections Libraries embark on a new mission to build the largest archive of artifacts, instruments, textiles, photographs, recordings and ephemera documenting the state of Georgia's rich musical history. This site offers a look at our growing music archive across the Special Collections Libraries.
