Become a Reviewer for the National Fellowship Program: Information for New Reviewers

Graduate Women In Science (GWIS) is recruiting subject matter experts to serve as proposal reviewers for our annual National Fellowship Program. The program advances the participation and recognition of women in scientific fields through competitive fellowships. One of the most important components of the organization’s success in promoting innovative researchers has been our reviewers’ careful selection, application feedback, and guidance for further improvements. GWIS welcomes reviewers irrespective of gender or sex.  

Reviewer Evaluation and Selection Process: 

If selected to participate, prospective reviewers will receive an official invitation in February. Each reviewer will review the criteria stated in the evaluation form and evaluate each application with specific regard to the discipline and the stage of graduate study. Reviewers will evaluate the following documents: the GWIS fellowships application form, abstract, project description (four pages), budget and justification, letter from host scientist (if applicable), and two letters of recommendation. On the evaluation form, each reviewer will assign a numerical score and provide comments designed to provide constructive feedback for strengthening the project.
