Become a Grant Reviewer
The GTOPs program relies on qualified reviewers to distribute funds every year. If you are interested, and think you are qualified, please submit an application. You can learn more about what it means to be a grant review below.
To ensure a comprehensive vetting of potential reviewers, please provide a copy of your resume or curriculum vitae if you would like to be a reviewer. The Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission votes to elect all panelists.
For GTOPs Core applications, there are two rounds of review, with approximately 10-15 hours of work required for each round. The first round of review is performed independently. The second round is a group discussion of all reviewers.
GTOPs Capacity and Mini applications are reviewed by Community Technology Services’ staff, members of the Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission, and external reviewers. 10-15 hours of work is required for Capacity and Mini reviewers. GTOPs Capacity reviews are scheduled to occur over June and GTOPs Mini reviews are scheduled to occur over May. Reviewers will need to be available for a single day of application evaluation for either Mini or Capacity.
Interested applicants can apply to serve on any of the three pathways or a combination depending on interest.
