    Becoming a Grant Reviewerexpand menu

    Serving as a grant reviewer is a benefit in numerous ways. Read on for detailed instructions regarding how to become a grant reviewer.

    Becoming a reviewer for the U.S. Department of Education (USDOEd):

    Register at G5 to become a reviewer for one or more of the various (USDOEd) grant programs. Completing your reviewer profile takes about 20 minutes. Among other short tasks, you need to upload your CV, provide demographic information, and select areas of specialization and competition preferences.

    Becoming a reviewer for the National Science Foundation (NSF):

    “To become an NSF reviewer, send an email to the NSF program officer(s) of the program(s) that fits your expertise. Introduce yourself and identify your areas of expertise, and let them know that you are interested in becoming a peer reviewer. It is most helpful if you also attach a two-page CV with current contact information. We also encourage you to share this request with other colleagues who might be interested in serving as NSF reviewers. NSF welcomes qualified reviewers from the academic, industrial, and government sectors.”

    Becoming a reviewer for the National Institutes of Health (NIH):

    “Individuals who possess expertise in areas supported by the NIH and who wish to volunteer to serve in the NIH peer review process should send an email to the Enhancing Peer Review mailbox with a brief description of their areas of expertise in the body of the email (1–2 sentences) and a copy of their biosketch as an attachment.”
