November 2006Vol. 7, No. 8Student Opportunities for ACF Grant Review
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is recruiting undergraduate and graduate students to serve on panels that review and make recommendations on the award of Federal grants. The ACF Student Grant Reviewer Pilot Program was created to broaden the pool and diversity of potential grant reviewers and to provide students with a valuable opportunity.
Students selected to serve on the grant review panels will spend 1 week reading, evaluating, discussing, and making recommendations on grant proposals. They will work with other panelists from a variety of backgrounds related to helping children and families. Students may be assigned to read grant applications in any of the following topical areas covered by ACF:
- Prevention of child abuse
- Head Start
- Child care
- Developmental disabilities
- Native Americans
- Community services
- Refugee resettlement
- Family assistance
Students who are selected to be reviewers will receive compensation for their time, as well as valuable experience in the Federal grant review process.
