How Can I Become a Proposal Reviewer?

I am looking for opportunities to review grant applications for state and federal agencies. What should I do?

Some federal agencies recruit reviewers on their web sites. Visit the websites of agencies related to your area of expertise and search out reviewing opportunities. Talk to federal and state staff who are connected with grant programs within your area of expertise. You may need to find them through internet research, talking with colleagues, or making a few calls. Tell them about your expertise and your interest in reviewing proposals. Contact your congressperson and ask for assistance. Congressional staff can help you find the right avenues to pursue.
