February 2008Vol. 9, No. 1Be a Grant Reviewer (Students, too!)

Each spring, the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recruits reviewers and panel chairpersons for its grant programs, including those administered by the Children's Bureau. Grant reviewers convene to receive training and then review grant applications.

To find out more about becoming a grant reviewer and to apply online, visit the ACYF grant website:

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) recruits undergraduate and graduate students to serve on panels that review and make recommendations on the award of Federal grants. Students selected to serve on the grant review panels spend 1 week reading, evaluating, discussing, and making recommendations on grant proposals. They work with other panelists from a variety of backgrounds related to helping children and families. Students who are selected to be reviewers receive compensation for their time, as well as valuable experience in the Federal grant review process.
