HRSA needs new and experienced grant reviewers with expertise in
- Health professions training
- Maternal and child health
- Organ transplantation
- Primary care for underserved people
- Rural health
Grant reviewers help HRSA select the best programs from competitive groups of applicants. Reviewers are chosen for specific grant programs, based on their knowledge, education and experience. Grant review panels are selected to reflect diversity of ethnicity, gender, experience and geography.
Reviewers use their expertise to objectively evaluate and score applications against published evaluation criteria. Reviewers gain understanding of the grant-making process while enjoying the opportunity to network with colleagues.
HRSA grant reviews usually are held in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and last for 3 to 5 days. Some reviews are conducted via teleconference or field reader reviews (a type of objective review approach where reviewers independently review applications from where they are based, with no group discussion of the applications).
HRSA makes all logistical arrangements and pays for travel expenses and other costs. Each reviewer receives an honorarium.
