It can easily be 25 hours of your time to serve as a grant review panelist. We acknowledge that this is a big time commitment and ask you to serve once per year at the most, but there is no requirement for serving more than once.
There is a 2 hour online training orientation where you learn about the grant criteria and how you are to assess your assigned applications.
Approximately 25 applications are assigned to be reviewed on your own time in preparation for your panel day. We estimate that it takes 30 minutes to assess each one of these approximately 5 page applications. Panelists are given approximately 4 weeks to review these applications and submit ratings and comments via an online grant portal.
