Becoming a Proposal Reviewer
Reviewing grant proposals is one of the best ways to learn to write a good proposal. Reviewers learn what types of projects get funded and how winning proposals are crafted. Reviewing is also an excellent way to build relationships with program officers and other experts in the field.
Fortunately, federal agencies require thousands of reviewers each year, thus program officers are always seeking reviewers with appropriate expertise. Some agencies continuously collect the names of potential reviewers. Other agencies put out specific calls for specific competitions. Below is a list of links to some federal agency reviewer web sites. If the appropriate funding agency for your field is not listed, search for a program officer at the agency for the appropriate funding program, and ask how the agency selects reviewers.
