Volunteer to Be a CAH Panelist

CAH seeks grant review panelists to perform evaluations of applications submitted to the agency for funding consideration throughout the year. Panelists are integral to the grantmaking process, providing a critical review, comments, and scores of all applications to a particular grant program.

Residents of the District of Columbia metropolitan area are encouraged to apply to serve as a panelist. Selected panelists will demonstrate expertise through involvement in the arts and humanities (i.e. artists, arts administrators, arts educators, gallery professionals, curators, art critics, etc.). CAH seeks panel diversity in all forms: age, race, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation, artistic discipline, location, etc.

Individuals selected to serve on a review panel will have 3-4 weeks to review a maximum of 30 applications. CAH estimates that a panelist will spend 40 hours reviewing applications online before one day of in-person service. Review panel meetings will take place virtually via video conference software unless otherwise noted.

Panelists are appointed to one panel per year for a maximum of three consecutive years and do not receive compensation,stipends, honorariums and/or travel reimbursement.

CAH maintains a database to help identify and select panelists. Panelist applicant information is used only for statistical and diversity inclusion purposes and is not shared with any third parties. Inclusion in this database does not guarantee selection for panel service.
