Please click on these links for specific information regarding upcoming reviews and desired reviewer expertise for each program area.

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 and have the opportunity to communicate with colleagues that often share common backgrounds and interests.

HRSA grant reviews are usually held via the internet along with a telephone conference call or as a field review where reviewers independently review applications with limited group discussions as necessary. In rare instances, HRSA will conduct face-to-face reviews in the Washington, DC metropolitan area lasting for 3 to 5 days. In such cases, HRSA makes all logistical arrangements and pays for travel expenses and other costs. Regardless of review type, each reviewer who participates and completes their assigned duties receives an honorarium.
