Becoming a Reviewer

Volunteering to be a peer-reviewer can be an invaluable experience!

  • Review proposals in agencies where you hope to receive funding
  • Discover what works and what does not
  • Learn how other reviewers evaluate proposals
  • Understand the expectations of different agencies

Many agencies will even let you become a reviewer before you have received funding from that agency.
