Sloan Foundation Grant for Open@RIT

RIT’s open programs office has received a nearly $500,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to measure and strengthen support of the faculty and staff who do work in the open community. Our own Steve Jacobs, director of Open@RIT, and Mel Chua did the foundation work for the grant which will help create and strengthen contributor/user communities and open production pipelines to increase the impact of supported open work.
