Call for NEEF Grant Reviewers

NEEF is seeking individuals to serve as reviewers for upcoming grant competitions. NEEF typically administers 7-10 grant competitions each year that invite educational (both formal and informal) and public land partners across the country to apply for funding. Requests for proposals typically solicit grant applications for projects that accomplish the following:

  • Provide STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education in a place-based context
  • Execute volunteer-based events on public lands
  • Focus on the restoration and resilience of public lands

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the grant-making process, develop your own grant-writing skills, learn about exciting trends in environmental education and public lands engagement, and contribute your knowledge and experience to NEEF’s efforts to select high-quality programs and organizations for funding.
Reviewers with expertise in natural resource management and natural disaster preparation and remediation -- particularly in regards to mitigating climate impacts -- are especially encouraged to inquire. Reviewers must be comfortable reading applications within a given period and providing analysis and commentary. Reviewers participate on a volunteer basis and are not paid positions.
