What is a panelist? Someone who evaluates grant proposals and takes part in the adjudication of a recipient. Why be a panelist?
- You get to witness what's happening in the field.
- You get to observe how others are writing about it.
- You get to understand the process for entering/evaluating a grant proposal.
- You get to effect the process, and therefore impact the field.
You are qualified. You can always apply for a grant or award that you are not reading proposals for; you must choose between either reading or applying for a particular grant/award process. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in participating sometime by sending a paragraph describing your experience or your interest in volunteering.
