Registration ends Friday for Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition faculty reviewers

University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty are invited to volunteer to serve as a peer reviewer of planning grant proposals submitted to the Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition in 2023. Reviewers are needed from every discipline at the university.

Those who volunteer will be needed for 9-12 hours in May and June and must complete a registration form (click the link below) by 5 p.m. on April 14.

Faculty from all academic ranks, including those earlier in their career, are encouraged to volunteer. The perspectives of scholars who belong to historically underrepresented groups, including gender and racial/ethnic minorities and individuals having other minoritized identities, are highly valued and sought as part of the proposal review process. 

Faculty listed as non-essential personnel in a planning grant proposal or who are participating in a catalyst award proposal team may serve as planning grant reviewers. Faculty named as principal investigator or essential personnel within a planning grant proposal will be excluded from the pool of reviewers.  

To indicate your willingness to serve as a volunteer peer reviewer, complete the following form by 5 p.m. CDT on Friday, April 14, 2023. Individuals who volunteer for peer review service will be notified about next steps by May 14.

Email if you have questions about the planning grant peer review process, or to nominate a faculty member to serve as a peer reviewer.
