Wanted: Peer Reviewers for Innovation Fund

The Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) is seeking peer reviewers for its grant competition.

i3 is designed to encourage and reward school districts, nonprofits, and consortia of schools that are developing fresh ideas, growing promising programs, and scaling what works in an effort to dramatically improve schools. The program received $650 million under the Recovery Act.

Reviewers are sought from various backgrounds and professions: PK-12 teachers and principals, college and university educators, researchers and evaluators, social entrepreneurs, strategy consultants, grant makers and managers, and others with education expertise.

Reviewers will independently read, score, and provide written comments for grant applications. The application review will be conducted electronically from the reviewer’s location, except for one set of reviews that may be conducted in Washington, D.C. Reviewers will receive an honorarium.

The deadline is March 1.
