Student Grant Reviewer Pilot Program
This pilot program is designed to give college undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to review and make recommendations on the award of grant applications for federal funding. Students will serve as a member of a grant review panel of subject matter experts who read the grant applications and prepare formal award recommendation reports. The students will be paid the same compensation received by the subject matter experts.
The success of this pilot program will serve a twofold purpose. First, ACF will hopefully gain access to a rich pool of creative talent that will add a fresh prospective to our grant review process. And second, students will have a rare opportunity to participate in a decision making process that will affect the lives of millions of Americans. Additionally, those students who are considering a career in public service or the non-profit community will gain valuable insight into the grant application and review process. This is truly a “Win-Win” situation for all.
