Serving as a grant proposal review panelist is an excellent way to learn about the grant process, become familiar with a particular grant program and/or funding agency, learn about innovations in your area of interest, and network with colleagues and funding agency representatives in your field. Review panel service is one of the single best ways to prepare yourself to develop a grant proposal.
