The UTMOST Project investigates the affordances and challenges of integrating powerful open source software for advanced mathematics (i.e. Sage) with textbooks and course materials provided with open licenses and available in a variety of formats. The project seeks to understand the ways in which these tools change instruction of undergraduate mathematics courses and the opportunities to learn that are created with these tools.
We are proposing a research project to the National Science Foundation's Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program and are soliciting the participation of undergraduate mathematics faculty to be part of this research study. Please see the more detailed proposal description (pdf), or follow this link to learn about the activities, stipends and application procedure.

NSF research study proposal, open textbooks and mathematics software
From the hopefully better late than never file: Rob Beezer asked me to post this a couple of weeks ago (sorry Rob). The deadline for applications was Dec 24, 2015, but contact Rob if you have something that might work for his proposal.
