Grant Program Guides

As part of its proposal review process, the National Science Foundation requires that all proposals substantially address the broader impact (BI) of the proposed research. The Broader Impacts Resource Center can help you address this important merit review criterion.

One of the best ways to learn how to write competitive grant proposals is to become a peer reviewer for a federal grant making agency¹. Procedures for applying to become a reviewer differ among the agencies. In general, each grant-making agency requires the reviewer to have specialized subject area expertise relevant to the specific grant program to be reviewed and other qualifications such as citizenship, geography, gender, race/ethnicity, and similar demographic factors, as well as access to eRA (electronic research administration) systems, willingness to travel (if required), and availability throughout the review process.
