NASA Call for Reviewers: Education Opportunities in NASA STEM 2018 (EONS-2018)

Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Friday, March 30, 2018

NASA Research and Education Support Services (NRESS) is seeking persons willing to serve as peer reviewers for two program elements listed under Education Opportunities in NASA STEM 2018 (EONS-2018):
 
Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Aerospace Academy (MAA)
and
Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Innovations in Space Technology Curriculum (MISTC)
 
Information about these opportunities can be found on their respective pages (MAA and MISTC) in the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES).
 
Peer review is a critical component of the decision-making process for awarding projects. By engaging individuals with different backgrounds, perspectives and areas of expertise in the review process, your participation will assist in identifying high-quality projects.
 
Reviewers will be selected based on the subject matter of the proposals received. Therefore your willingness to participate in this particular peer review does not guarantee selection. Your information will be recorded for future requests for reviewers. If you are selected, you will be notified via email, with detailed instructions on the process.
 
The peer review process is completed in two stages. First, the proposals are reviewed individually and anonymously online. Next, a 2-3 day panel will convene (either in-person or virtually) to discuss the proposals and identify those recommended for funding.
 
Proposals are approximately 15-20 pages in length and every effort is made to assign no more than 5 proposals per online reviewer.
 
THE ONLINE REVIEW PERIOD IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR 5/18/2018-6/1/2018.
Non-civil servant online reviewers will receive $75 for each proposal fully reviewed and submitted in NSPIRES prior to the close of the review period.
 
THE PANEL REVIEW IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR 6/18/2018-6/21/2018.
Non-civil servant panelists will receive a $200/per day honorarium.
 
Please respond by April 10, 2018 to the questions below and thank you in advance.
