Call for Volunteer Peer Reviewers in all Disciplines

January 11, 2021

The Office of Research and Innovation is recruiting faculty volunteer Peer Reviewers for limited submission and internally-funded competition submissions.

To all currently serving as Peer Reviewers, we truly appreciate your time and commitment to this process. The process of reviewing proposals is easy and efficient. All reviews are conducted virtually through the Drexel University Funding Portal

For limited submission competition, reviewers are assigned to read a two-page pre-proposal, then use the evaluation criteria provided to rate and provide feedback. The time commitment is dependent on the number of proposals submitted, typically 1-2 hours.

For internally-funded competitions such as faculty awards and DARE, reviewers are assigned to read full proposals, then use evaluation criteria to rate and provide feedback. Depending on the award type, the time commitment varies.

Reviewer selection for competitions is determined through a needs analysis that assesses the overall pool of applications, and one that ensures reviewers are broadly representative of the applicant pool.

If you are interesting in volunteering as a Peer Reviewer, please sign-up no later than 5:00pm on Monday, January 25, 2021. 

Should you have any questions, please email
