Becoming a Grant Reviewer
Serving as a proposal reviewer is an excellent way to learn about the grant process and become familiar with a particular grant program and/or funding agency. Reviewers also get a chance to learn about innovations in their field and to network with colleagues and funding agency representatives who share their interests. Review panel service is one of the best ways to prepare yourself to develop a grant proposal — it’s mighty eye-opening to sit on the other side.
Federal agencies typically pay reviewers a daily honorarium and cover travel costs. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is the nation’s largest grant-awarding agency. Click here for info on how to review HHS proposals, gain valuable experience — and get paid for it!
