What Time Commitment Is Required?

We administer the entire review process through a user-friendly grant management system. Phase 1, the one-page Letter of Intent, should take less than half an hour to read and cast a yes/no vote. If asked to review a three-page application (Phase 2) due to your particular expertise, you will likely spend one to two hours reading and thinking about it. We do not require a detailed written review, merely your yes or no vote, however all comments are useful and welcome. Particularly if you vote against a proposal, we encourage you to write a few lines explaining your concerns. This will be helpful to the other reviewers and the applicant.

In Phase 3, members of the Layperson Committee will be asked to look at and comment on website presentations and should expect to spend an hour or so on each.
