Get Behind the Scenes: Becoming a Grant Reviewer (Ericka Harney)

Grant professionals are always looking for ways to improve proposals. Serving as a peer reviewer is an eye-opening experience into the grant process, as well as a particular agency, new ideas and programs, and network with other professionals. Federal agencies and some foundations rely on professionals in academia and nonprofit fields with specific knowledge and experience to gauge proposals against scoring criteria set by the funding agency.

Even though each funding agency is different, this session explores how you become a reviewer, what to expect with the process and what to glean from the experience. Take your grant professional career to the next level by serving as a reviewer!
