Veterans Legacy Grant Program: Peer Reviewers

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), National Cemetery Administration (NCA), Veterans Legacy Grant Program (VLGP)

Notice of Funds Available (NOFA)*

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, National Cemetery Administration, Veterans Legacy Grant Program announces opportunities for individuals to participate in its peer-review process by reviewing applications for competitive grant funding.

Peer Review Opportunities

Requests to serve as a peer reviewer will be accepted ongoing, aligned with this year's grant competition schedule. The Department's peer review begins in Summer 2022 and will continue through the end of the summer. New grants application processes are annually, and there will always be opportunities to serve on the peer-review board. Contact Dr. Denise Rosier, Ph.D. Program Director for further information.

Peer reviewers for each competition will be selected based on several factors, including each reviewer's program-specific expertise, the number of applications to be reviewed, and the availability of prospective reviewers. Individuals selected to serve as peer reviewers are expected to participate in training, independently read, score, provide written evaluative comments on assigned applications, and participate in facilitated panel discussions. Panel discussions are held in person in the Washington, DC area, Webex, or via conference calls.

In grant-making processes, the time commitment for peer reviewers can range from a few to several hours a day over one to four weeks. During this Notice of Funds Available (NOFA), we seek volunteer doctoral candidates, professors, other Subject Matter Experts (SME), and internal stakeholders to the VA. Volunteers should be passionate about Veterans for this peer-review opportunity.

Are you interested in serving as a Peer Reviewer?

1. If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer for the Department, you should first review the Veterans Legacy Program pages to ensure that the grant programs match your area of expertise.

2. Requests to serve as a peer reviewer should be submitted four weeks before the program's application deadline, noted on the Application Information page, to provide the program office sufficient time to review resumes and determine an individual's suitability to serve as a peer reviewer for a specific competition.

3. If you are selected to serve as a peer reviewer, Program Director will contact you.

4. Please submit your CV and 250-word statement justification for consideration to submit to be consider to the Veterans Legacy Grant Program.

NOTE: It would help if you lived in the Washington, DC area to be considered.
