New reviewers will be required to engage in training, including one video to be viewed asynchronously, a review of the updated RFA and rubric, and one 1-2-hour live training on Zoom.


All reviewers will be responsible for the review of 3-4 applications and will be required to attend 3-4 applicant interviews and preparation sessions. 


Important dates for this round include: 


Peer Review Window: 7/5/2023- 8/10/23 


Peer Reviewer Training: TBD depending on team availability (before 6/30) 


Applicant Interviews – Applicant Interviews 8/15-17

Reviewers are required to be online and in front of a computer in order to prepare for interviews, engage with schools, and write and edit feedback on the applications.
